Everyone and their mother had their own new floppy replacement. You'd watch a show on tv during prime time and see ads for 3 competing technologies.
I think there were both 1GB and 2GB Jaz drives, but I don't think they were tape. Tape drives were something else, I don't know how much the held, but that's what my Dad use to use in the early 90's to backup our computer. I do remember hearing something about super floppy disks, but I don't think that went anywhere.
My first PC at home was in 1994. I missed out on the tape loading days. But I remember a friend had gotten a commodore 64, and his games took ages to load. We'd sit there, and sit there, and sit there, then go outside and find something to do. He could have fun with is commodore. I just went and put my cartridge in and hit start.
