FLOPPY DRIVE ABCs
Originally created in 1967 by IBM. The floppy reference is derived from the floppy media that is encased within the protective casing. This media is a magnetic medium and is written to much like the method used by hard disk drives. Floppy drives have been found in computers for several years and are commonly still being used today. The next generation of floppy drives will more then likely be the LS-120 diskette drives which are already being included in many computers now.
8" Disk- The first disk was introduced in 1971. The disk was 8" in diameter with a magnetic coating, enclosed in a cardboard case with the capacity of one megabyte. Conversely to hard disks, the heads actually touch the disk, like in a cassette or video player which actually wears the media.
5.25" Disk - 160KB first Created in 1976 and later becoming a standard in 1978.
* 5.25" Single Side - 160KB
5.25" Double Side - 360KB
5.25" Double Side High Density - 1.2MB
3.5" Disk - Created by IBM in 1984, which even today are still commonly used. Most 3 1/2" newer disks have a capacity of up to 1.44MB.
* 3.5" Double Density - 720KB
3.5" High Density - 1.44MB
3.5" Extended Density (IBM ONLY) - 2.88MB
3.5" FLOPPY DISKETTE
Below we have represented a picture of the now commonly used 3.5" floppy diskettes. The below representation is what the back of a floppy diskette looks like. As you can see there are four main visible parts:
First the top left of the back of the floppy there is a small tab. This tab enables the floppy disk to be switched from write protected and un-write protected. Move the tab to the top position creating a hole makes the disk write protected. This means that nothing can be written, erased or deleted from the diskette. Moving the tab to the bottom position allows the disk to be un-write protected. Which means the diskette can be written too, erased and or have information deleted from the diskette. Some diskettes which are generally cheaper diskettes will be missing this tab. To write information to the diskette you will have to place a piece of scotch tab over the whole.
Second the top right hand of the back of the floppy you will notice a small whole. This tells the computer if the diskette within the computer is a High Density diskette.
Third you will notice the circular metal disk in the middle of the floppy diskette. This is used to rotate the magnetic medium within the floppy disk casing.
Fourth you will see a metal door which can be moved left and then will snap back to its original position. This door is used to allow the read/write head within the floppy drive to have the capability of accessing the magnetic medium within the casing. Once the diskette is removed this door will snap back into position helping to prevent anything from getting on the magnetic medium and destroying it.
5 1/4" FLOPPY DISKETTE
Below is a representation of a 5 1/4" floppy commonly used in 1980's and is generally no longer used today. The 5 1/4" floppy diskette was really floppy (flimsy) when compared to the 3.5" floppy diskette.
As you can notice in the above illustration the 5 1/4" floppy does not have many involved components. First you will notice the Write protection tab which would be present if the diskette allowed information to be written to it. Placing a piece of tape over the hole or if the hole was not present this would make the diskette write protected.
Second you should notice the large hole in the center of the floppy diskette. This hole allowed the platter within the floppy to be rotated allowing the information to be read from the write access hole.
Third you should notice the Index hole this hole was the computers way of knowing where the starting point of the sector was on the diskette by physically having a hole punched in the film disc within the plastic casing.
Finally you should notice the write access hole. This is the location which information would be read from as the disc within would rotate. However because there was no protection like that found on the 3.5" floppy diskette the 5 1/4" floppy diskette was generally protected by placing it within a protective sleeve.

Important product labels have an overabundance of resources thus they will save money on the creation as well as advertising and marketing of their artists' recordings. However, it doesn't necessarily mean that many designer signed into a main tag will have identical having access to people resources. Designers with main product labels can on occasion turn out to be "lost inside shuffle". On the other hand, each time a main tag does put its total resources into an artist's profession, the end result is quite a bit additional nationwide (and international) direct exposure in comparison with an indie tag may offer.
Important product labels want to buy it in providing recordings that will sell countless replicates. That will sometimes ends up with an essential centering on the projects of merely one or even a couple of painters which the main thinks effective at making a gold or american platinum eagle cd. Their need to sell countless data may also create the main unwilling to produce a minute cd to have an painters whose prior cd gave unsatisfying or only reasonable revenue.The Indies
There are many types of independent (or indie) labels, but you can think of them as falling into two broad categories: (i) indie labels which are associated with major labels, and (ii) indie labels which are truly independent and have no association with a major label.
On the other side of the array involving indie-major interactions are these indies which might be fully-staffed file organizations yet absence having access to a new countrywide submission circle. These kind of indies make use of the main labeling with regard to submission of their records. The actual indie may perhaps pay the actual main a new submission charge to its assistance, as well as the actual main will take partially title of the indie. The actual main might additionally pay for a number of as well as all the indie's operating prices.
It's often easier to get signed to an indie label. Since indie labels don't need to sell millions of copies in order to make a profit, an indie may be preferable for music targeted to a smaller niche such as children's music, jazz and folk and an indie may be more tolerant with artists who are still developing a following of fans who want to purchase their recordings. Since indies tend to be smaller companies than majors, the indie can often give more personal attention to each of its signed artist.
On the minus side, indies typically have fewer financial resources so royalties, advances and recording budgets are lower than what a major label would offer. If the indie relies heavily on the services of a major, the artist will be one step further away from the decision-makers who have an impact on his career.

A DVD-RW is a rewritable optical disc with equal storage capacity to a DVD-R, typically 4.7 GB. The format was developed by Pioneer in November 1999 and has been approved by the DVD Forum. Unlike DVD-RAM, it is playable in about 75% of conventional DVD players.
The primary advantage of DVD-RW over DVD-R is the ability to erase and rewrite to a DVD-RW disc. According to Pioneer, DVD-RW discs may be written to about 1,000 times before needing replacement, making them comparable with the CD-RW standard. DVD-RW discs are commonly used for volatile data, such as backups or collections of files. They are also increasingly used for home DVD video recorders. One benefit to using a rewritable disc is if there are writing errors when recording data, the disc is not ruined and can still store data by erasing the faulty data.
Unlike DVD-R, the DVD-RW standard has always dictated a capacity of 4.7 GB.
One competing rewritable format is DVD+RW. Hybrid drives that can handle both, often labeled "DVD±RW", are very popular since there is not yet a single standard for recordable DVDs.
The recording layer in DVD-RW and DVD+RW is not an organic dye, but a special phase change metal alloy, often GeSbTe. The alloy can be switched back and forth between a crystalline phase and an amorphous phase, changing the reflectivity, depending on the power of the laser beam. Data can thus be written, erased and re-written.
