[TOS #9] write and erase magnetic head
Hi, I would like to ask if i need an erase magnetic head to clear the previous data if i want to write new data with a write head on a HICO magnetic stripe used on tickets in public transport or i can just use just a write head to overwrite "the old" data with new one without erasing anything?

Thanks for all replies
Best regards

I guess I've never felt the need for it before, but I'm surprised there isn't a "Report This Post" button on the Forum.  This one above certainly seems like a violation of the intent of TOS #9:  "Gee, please help me hackz a metro card."

Actually, there is one on the bottom left corner of each single post.
