tape drives have traditionally been five to ten percent less expensive that their SCSI counterparts, and it is expected that this cost advantage will continue with next-generation SATA tape drive offerings.
Drive Image 4.0 works with IDE, SCSI or ATAPI
drives that are Multi-Media Command Set version 2 (MMC-2) compliant, which includes most new drives.
Seagate will continue to offer its 20GB SCSI Travan Network Series drives which offer enhanced features like hardware data compression and read-while-write data verification for servers, as well as its 20GB ATAPI
interface drives for workstations.
Using the standard ATAPI
interface, it can be used as a bootable a:\drive.
The drive, the Internal ATAPI
Zip Drive, hit CompUSA stores April 19th and will ship nationwide at the end of this month.

interface for easy installation inside a PC and includes a black replacement bezel for those with black-colored PC cases.
The new CD/DVD drives for SATA will continue to use the ATAPI
protocol as they did on parallel ATA, even though ATAPI
adds a significant amount of protocol complexity.
The external CRW8 824FXZ joins the internal format ATAPI
