Hitachi's hard drive operation has added 40GB and 60GB models to its line of 1.8in hard drives, which it has refreshed with an IDE interface the better to broaden its appeal from MP3 player manufacturers and the like to notebook makers.

The 20 and 30GB models launched last September had ZIF interfaces; the new models support Parallel ATA-100 at all drives capacities.

The updated Travelstar C4K60 range is available in 20, 30, 40 and 60GB versions. The lower-capacity units are 7mm thick, whereas the two new models are 9.5mm thick to accommodate a second platter and two more read/write heads. The two sets weigh 47g and 62g, respectively.

All the drives spin at 4200rpm, with an average latency of 7.1ms and an average seek time of 15ms. They can withstand 500G operating shock and 1200G non-operating shock, Hitachi said.

All four capacities with an IDA interface are available now, as are the ZIF-equipped 20 and 30GB models. ®
