AbstractIn a magnetic disk drive having a linear-moving type magnetic-head positioning mechanism, a head gap is formed to be parallel to a moving direction of the magnetic-head positioning mechanism, and a magnetic head is mounted on the magnetic-head positioning mechanism through a suspension, so that the longitudinal direction of the magnetic head is perpendicular to the radial direction of a magnetic disk when it is at the inner periphery of the magnetic disk.
