Computer storage media devices such as floppy disks, hard disk drives, removable hard disks, compact disks (CD), digital versatile disks (DVD), tape drives, smart cards, and PCMCIA cards are employed in many computer systems. Floppy disk, hard disk, and magnetic tape are non-volatile magnetic storage devices storing information by using different patterns of magnetization on a magnetically coated surface. Flash memory is a form of non-volatile semiconductor-based integrated circuit memory that can be electrically erased and reprogrammed. PC cards and various memory cards such as SmartMedia, MMC, Secure Digital, Memory Stick and xD-Picture Cards are NAND-based removable flash memeory cards used typically in portable electronics including digital audio players, camcorders, digital cameras and mobile phones.
