a Superdisk™ (LS-120) drive definition.
NOTE: Unlike a standard floppy disk drive, the SuperDisk drive is an ATAPI device like a hard drive, and as such it is subject to different drive ordering than a floppy drive.
Some software may require that the SuperDisk drive be recognized as drive A:\, in order to create a diskette.
For more information about the SuperDisk, browse to the Imation Web site at http://www.imation.com, click Search, type superdisk and then press the <Enter> key.
The SuperDisk (LS-120) is a removable storage device.
The SuperDisk (LS-120) is a removable storage device. The technology was created through a partnership between Imation (3M) and Matsushita (Panasonic) to replace the 3.5 inch floppy drive technology. Unlike some other removable storage options like Iomega Zip drives and disks or SyQuest drives and disks, the SuperDisk is not a proprietary technology.
SuperDisk drives are compatible with older floppy drive technology. The SuperDisk drive can support 720K and 1.44M floppies, as well as its own 120MB SuperDisk media. The SuperDisk drive also outperforms standard floppy drives by a factor of 5 on 720k and 1.44M disks.
The original name for this drive is LS-120, where LS stands for the Laser Servo technology used to guide the disk drive heads, and 120 signifies the media size of 120MB. SuperDisk is the more marketing friendly name. Either of these terms refers to the same product.
