Choose java or Shockwave Flash to view our GMR animations

From this page, you can view an animated simulation of an MR and GMR head inside a hard disk drive (GMR 101). Please choose to view our exciting animation of GMR using either java or Macromedia's Shockwave Flash plugin. We recommend that you use a Pentium-90 with 16 megabytes of RAM or greater.


We recommend the Shockwave versions as they run much faster and smoother than the java versions, but we wanted to provide an option for the plugin-averse user.
