SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Seagate Technology, the largest U.S. maker of computer hard-disk drives, on Monday announced a broad range of new products, including a mini hard-disk drive to take advantage of strong demand for the devices used in compact digital music players.
Seagate announced its first 1-inch disk drive that can hold 2.5 gigabytes or 5 gigabytes of data, the industry's first 1-inch drive with that much capacity, the company said.

Seagate joins Hitachi Ltd.'s Hitachi Global Storage Technology as the second major maker of disk drives manufacturing the tiny hard drives, which are widely used in digital music players and other consumer electronics devices.

Hitachi's 1-inch disk drive with a capacity of 4 gigabytes is used in Apple Computer Inc.'s popular iPod Mini digital music player. Last month, Hitachi said it would boost production of the small drive to about 2 million units a quarter by the end of the year, from 200,000 in the first quarter.

Companies such as start-up Cornice Inc. and Toshiba Corp. are also working on small drives that hold several gigabytes of data.

Brian Dexheimer, head of worldwide sales and marketing for Seagate, said that with the company's new disk drives, which number more than 10, the company now has products covering almost 100 percent of the $23 billion market for disk drives. That is up from 75 percent before.

Asked if Seagate is likely to be an additional provider of the mini hard drives to Apple, Dexheimer said: "We'd like to be. We're certainly talking to them about this product."

An Apple representative was not immediately available to comment.

Seagate introduced other new products suitable for use in portable music players, video players, handheld computers or other devices. Among them were a hard drive for digital cameras, using a flash-chip interface, and a USB external drive, about the size of a hockey puck and housed in a sturdy case.

In addition to higher-capacity and faster drives for use in computer servers, Seagate announced a 3.5-inch hard drive for consumer electronics makers to use in digital video recorders and home media servers. It can store up to 400 gigabytes of data, Seagate said.
