What exactly are you looking for?
Your question is very vague.

I used magnetic strips for programming an HP calculator.
Also used standard cassette tapes for storing BASIC programs on a 99-4A.

Do you have a particular application in mind?

I would think that we're not looking for "old" technology.  Perhaps we should expand the criteria to include the venerable non-magnetic paper tape or the punch cards as well?

The most popular ones have been posted above.  Most of the higher capacity units can also be found in a library format to expand the capacity even further.

Here's a list at least:

Assumptions.

O.P. is unclear.  Also, appears to be posting homework questions.

"jargon" is language characteristic of a particular group...not just non-"old" members of a group.

Some of us "old" thirty-somethings have a little knowledge to offer.  For instance, we know that 9-track is not a typographical error for 8-track.  :)
