The 1541 disk drive was the most popular disk drive used with the Commodore 64 computer. The 5.25-inch floppy disks were capable of storing 170Kb of data.
The drives used a serial interface and were relatively slow in transferring data at just 300 bytes per second. Various third party programs such as JiffyDos supplied on ROM were able to speed this up to rates of around 4000 bytes per second.
