MAGNETO-OPTICAL DRIVES DEFINITION (continued): …  MO diskette can store many times that amount, ranging from 100 MB up to several gigabytes (GB).An MO system achieves its high data density by using a laser and a magnetic read/write head in combination. Both the laser and the magnet are used to write data onto the diskette. The laser heats up the diskette surface so it can be easily magnetized, and also to allow the region of magnetization to be precisely located and confined. A less intense laser is used to read data from the diskette. Data can be erased and/or overwritten an unlimited number of times, as with a conventional3.5-inch diskette.Examples …
