There has been some extensive reverse engineering work done into Trace 
brand duplication machines, but tragically the group who did this work 
refuses to share even one IOTA of information they gleaned, making it 
completely worthless.

The group is SPS, creators of the heavily locked down and licence/usage 
encumbered Kryoflux floppy imaging device. (you're not allowed to share 
images you make with the device, except with SPS themselves! read the 
license! Its complete madness, and goes against every definition of 
preservation I've ever seen.)
