In this paper, the helical-scan tape systems using the shielded MR
heads will be discussed. We studied the issues related to the head/tape
contact including the thermal asperity and the head wear. The study
suggests that these issues can be resolved to the allowable level in the
practical system. In this study, we have successfully demonstrated a
high recording density using MR heads in these systems
