Title: Method for eliminating wiggle of magnetic head in hard disk drive

Abstract: A method for eliminating a wiggle of a magnetic head in a hard disk drive includes the steps of moving a first magnetic head to a parking area when wiggle is generated in the first magnetic head being in use, checking whether the first magnetic head is positioned in the parking area, using a second magnetic head at which the wiggle is not generated, and eliminating the wiggle by supplying current to the first magnetic head.
