This question already has an answer here:
In the opening of The Siege of AR-558 episode:
Dr. Bashir (...) retrieves a recording Vic has made for him to give to the Starfleet soldiers on AR-558.
How could that be possible? How could Bashir take virtual ("made of photons and energy"), non-existing in real world music chip out of holosuite? How could it be transported to AR-558? How could AR-558 soldiers make any use of it?
I thought that mobile emiters were invented (and shown) in Voyager serie only and that they were designed for a bit more important purpose (like having the only doctor aboard to travel outside ship) then using it as today music pendrive.
Wouldn't it be easier to simply download this music out of holosuite memory to any storage chip?
I don't know, what am I missing, but for me this tiny and irrelevant part of The Siege of AR-558 episode simply is an absolute non-sense.
