Introduction to Seminar Topic on Removable Media Storage Devices:

Mass storage or auxiliary storage refer to different devices are used to store huge amounts of data. Now many modern storage devises developed but in earliest days of early 1800’s only these storage devices developed. These modern storage devices includes all type of tape drives and disc drives such as optical disc drives, RAID systems, floppy disc drives, magnetic tape drives and drum memory.

These mass storage devices include non removable and removable media devices. Mass storage devices are similar to memory present in the devises but not the same. Temporary storage within system is referred as memory but mass storage devices store the data permanently even when the system turns off. These mass storage devices are measured in kilobytes (kb), megabytes (mb), gigabytes (gb) or in terabytes (tb) and these devices have characteristics of seek time, course capacity, transfer speed and cost.

Magnetic storage disks are mostly used in personal computers for storage media. This magnetic disk can be recorded and also re-recorded magnetically any times. Magnetic recording tapes, floppy disks, hard disks and magnetic strips on electronic cards are the common examples for magnetic storage devices. For creating CD’s and DVD’s optical storage devices are used that is written and read by light where the data is stored. Optical disks have the advantages of less weight and higher capacity over magnetic disks.Many mass storage devices are developed in advanced years day by day from when the first mass storage device floppy designed in 1971.

In this project we are going to give a detailed information that how mass storage devices store the data, types of mass storage devices, history of these mass storage devices and resent developments in these mass storage devices and what are the advantages of these mass storage devices.
