What is the difference between storage media and storage devices?

  • Computer Studies -

    I would take storage media to mean any of the following:

    a disk (CD or DVD or ??)
    a flash/thumb drive
    a zip disk (old fashioned!)
    floppy disks (also very old fashioned!)
    etc.

    I would take storage devices to mean any of the following:
    external or internal hard drive
    external back-up drive
    external company (such as www.carbonite.com)
