An AV drive is a hard disk drive which is designed specifically for audio and video purposes. They were used in the late 1990s for sustained media transfers: they delayed thermal recalibration so it would not interfere with the transfer.
Also they were popular in the early ages of CD burning. Early CD writers ruined the disk when a buffer underrun occurred, which could happen when the hard drive would calibrate.
