New 'Superdisk' drive
Matsushitas (Panasonic) today announced the second generation of the 'Superdisk' drive. Instead of 120 MB, you can store 240 MB of data on the Superdisks.
The main attraction is that you can use normal 3.5 inch floppy disks in the drive. The device then reformats this, expanding the storage capacity to 32 megabytes. This is made possible by the 'FD32MB' technology from Matsushitas, which increases the number of tracks from 80 to 777. Production of the new drives should start in December.
