3-Inch Disk Drive
A compact, 3-inch floppy disk drive is available from Panasonic. The drive is plug compatible with most 5¼-inch disk interfaces and uses the same recording method, data transfer rate, and disk rotation speed.
The EME-101 drive is roughly half the weight and one-fourth the size of conventional disk drives, but it offers the same storage capacity. A brushless direct-drive DC motor eliminates the need for belts, and a steel band positioning mechanism allows for a 3-millisecond track access time.
