1. A method of correcting errors in a decision-codeword by employing a Reed Solomon error-correction code RS(n,k) having a correction capability t=(n−

  • k)/2, the method comprising;


    determining whether errors in a decision-codeword are of a degree that exceeds a Reed Solomon error-correction code'"'"'s correction capability, by using an error indicator for the decision-codeword,modifying the decision-codeword to produce a modified decision-codeword if the degree of the errors exceeds the correction capability, andgenerating an error indicator for the modified decision-codeword using the error indicator for the decision-codeword;


    the modified decision-codeword is a decision-codeword in a next iteration.
