    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:

    You may want to wiki each leading type to get the basic technicals on each:

    You can click on each type to get some specifics.

    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.  :)
