Title: Method for reducing external signal interference with signals in a computer disk storage system

Abstract: Disclosed is a method to reduce external signal interference with signals in a computer disk storage system including a disk drive. An electrically conductive housing is provided for the disk drive to enclose and support within the housing analog circuitry, a motor for rotating media for the storage of information, and circuitry for converting analog signals to digital signals. Circuitry and conductors which carry analog signals are enclosed within the electrically conductive housing and signal conversion circuitry is provided within the housing to convert analog signals into digital signals before transmission to the exterior of the housing.
