SMD-E specification wanted by Eric Smith
Does anyone have a copy of the SMD-E Interface Specification, which is CDC/Imprimis/Seagate document 64712402? The spec for the earlier SMD interface is on Bitsavers, but it doesn't look like the SMD-E spec is there. Thanks! Eric

Out-of-order writing by disk drives by Bill Todd

Multi microsd reader by acd
micro-SD are one of the most economical and compact flash media. I wonder if there are adapters to connect many of them in a compact format, say 32,64 or more. This would represent a scalable SSD building block. Andreas
