  3. What is storage? The media on which data, instructions, and information are kept, as well as the devices that record and retrieve these items Memory Versus Storage Next p. 7. 2 Fig. 7-1

  4. What is memory? A temporary holding place for data and instructions Consists of one or more chips on the motherboard Sometimes called primary storage Memory Versus Storage Nonvolatile memory Does not lose its contents when power is removed from the computer Volatile memory Loses its contents when the computer’s power is turned off Most memory is volatile Next p. 7. 3

  5. How does storage differ from memory? Storage also called secondary storage, auxiliary storage, permanent storage, or mass storage Storage holds items such as data, instructions, and information for future use Storage is nonvolatile Memory Versus Storage When you are finished with the file, you remove it from memory and return it to storage When you want to work with a file, you remove it from storage and place it in memory Next p. 7. 4

  15. How are floppy disk drives designated? Floppy Disks One floppy drive drive A Two floppy drives drive A drive B Next p. 7. 6

  16. How does a floppy disk store data? A type of magnetic media Uses magnetic patterns to store items such as data, instructions, and information on a disk’s surface Able to access (read) data from and place (write) data on a magnetic disk any number of times The read/write head in the floppy disk drive is the mechanism that actually reads items from or writes items on the floppy disk Floppy Disks Next p. 7. 8

  17. How does a floppy disk drive work? Floppy Disks Step 1: When you insert the floppy disk into the drive, the shutter moves to the side to expose the recording surface on the disk. Step 2: When you initiate a disk access, the circuit board on the drive sends signals to control movement of the read/write heads and the disk. Step 1 Step 2 Step 3: If disk access is a write instruction, the circuit board verifies whether the disk can be written to or not. Step 6 Step 4: A motor causes the floppy disk to spin. Step 5: A motor positions the read/write heads over the correct location on the recording surface of the disk. Step 6: The read/write heads read data from and write data on the floppy disk. Step 5 Step 4 Step 3 Next p. 7. 7 Fig. 7-7

  18. What is density? The number of bits in an area on a storage medium A floppy disk drive must support that floppy disk’s density Most floppy disks today are high density (HD) with a capacity of 1.44 MB Floppy Disks Downward compatible Able to recognize and use earlier media Floppy disk drives are downward compatible Upward compatible Able to recognize newer media Floppy disk drives are not upward compatible Next p. 7. 7

  19. What are tracks and sectors? Track: a narrow recording band that forms a full circle on the surface of the disk Pie shaped sections break the tracks into small arcs called sectors A sector can store up to 512 bytes of data A typical floppy disk stores data on both sides of the disk Floppy Disks sector18 per track track80 per side Next 80 tracks per side X 18 sectors per track X 2 sides per disk X 512 bytes per sector = 1,474,560 bytes p. 7.8 Fig. 7-8
