SyQuest removable disks

Like JAZ, SyQuest developed their own standard of replaceable platter cartridge drives. These drives weren't popular in everyday use, but got some popularity in DTP and CAD design studios to move large design files to printing. There were 44 and 88MB disks, later drives used larger ones - 200MB or even 4GB.

Former SyQuest engineers made also Castlewood ORB drive, similar drive with platter cartridge.

To see the drive, in application, see Macintosh Quadra 950 and, for photos of internals, its gallery.
