Is this a homework assignment? If so, you can research all of these easily at wikipedia.org.

BTW, the answer to many of these devices is "it depends".......

I am looking for a, how should I put this.......I am kind of seeing which external drive would have the more appropriate storage for different projects. If I know what the max for each one is then I will know for future reference which on ewould be most a propriate for the task I am doing. The reason I would like the max for all is because I often help my friends with mods of games or other micellaneous projects and usually they buy the matierials because it is their project, which need to be taken on the go from time to time.

I sort of get what you are looking for, but most of the tech you are asking about is obsolete are no longer in use, or at least in practical use.

For example, look at this link for the info regarding floppy disks:

Most of the devices have different sizes associated with them, depending on the actual media/device used. Tape drives, for example, can be of varying capacity. DVD media comes in several flavors/capacities.

I suggest you go to wikipedia.org and look at each device you really want to know about. Shouldn't take more than an hour to look up and read about all of them. A simple google of "LS120 capacity" will yield a link directly to wikipedia.

Curiosity is good. Learning is evern better!

Best wishes on the expansion of your geek intellect.....
