Mehanički uređaj koji čita diskove. Na PC računarima diskovi su označeni slovima A do Z.
An electromechanical device that reads from and writes to disks. The main components of a disk drive include a spindle on which the disk is mounted, a drive motor that spins the disk when the drive is in operation, one or more read/write heads, a second motor that positions the read/write heads over the disk, and controller circuitry that synchronizes read/write activities and transfers information to and from the computer. Two types of disk drives are in common use: floppy disk drives and hard disk drives. Floppy disk drives are designed to accept removable disks in either 5.25-inch or 3.5-inch format; hard disk drives are faster, high-capacity storage units that are completely enclosed in a protective case.
(Computer science) Computer hardware that holds and spins a magnetic or optical disk and reads and writes information on it; SYN. disc drive, hard drive, Winchester drive.
Mechanical device that reads data from and writes data to a magnetic disc.
