Paper Abstract

A magneto-optical disk drive was developed to be capable of reading/writing 230 MB and 128 MB disks at a disk rotation of 3600 rpm. In order to improve the data transfer speed, a new disk cache algorithm was applied to the drive using its internal buffer. This cache algorithm achieved speed-up by 10-50% even under 'smartdrv'.
