Title: Adapter

Abstract: A disk-cartridge-type adapter is shaped like a disk cartridge. The adapter has an insertion detector and a rotation detector. Power supply to a controller of the adapter is enabled when the adapter is inserted into a disk cartridge drive. Power supply to other parts of the adapter is enabled when a motor of the disk cartridge drive starts to rotate. This arrangement reduces the power consumption of the adapter.
