Phonograph records consists of eight discs of the Presto Recording Corp. brand (New York), which were apparently made on some proprietary cutting machine. The recording surface appears to be a thin plastic film bonded to a brittle base. How they came to be made is unknown. The digitization is incomplete because of two reasons: the turntable at the DMA automatically cuts off before the beginning of these discs (that play from the inside to the outside), and many of them are too damaged to play. (Unreviewed) WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
