Fujifilm has launched its 3.5-inch High Capacity Floppy Disk (HiFD) for Sony's HiFD drive. The new floppy disk uses Fujifilm's ATOMM technology, which is a dual magnetic layer coating system, to provide 200Mb storage capacity -- the equivalent of 139 standard 1.44Mb floppy disks. Other features include full backward compatibility with current floppy disks, transfer speeds of 3.6Mb/second, a soft head loading system to reduce wear and tear and a new shutter that prevents dust from entering the disk. The new floppy disk will be available at the end of November at GBP10.95 for a single pack and at GBP19.95 for a twin pack.
