    Default Deleting from HDD v Solid State - same?

    Is it really true on phones etc that deleting only re-allocates that space, like conputer HDD's. I understand hard disks have space physically written on or over with a laser.
    This has been mentioned a few times in forums.

    Which brings me to my real curiosity.
    I understood basically how computer hdd's and rw cd's worked.
    I can't figure though how my 2 year old Panasonic twin digital tuner (Freeview / free to air) with a 320 gb hard drive does it's magic tricks.
    Most people will have had similar.

    It never asks to be defragmented or formatted (though it can be formatted).
    It can record 2 channels simultaneously and either buffer/90 minute rewind a live channel, or play back something while still recording 2, I think!
    If I delete certain recordings made at different times so presumably physically on different parts of the discs (roughly 80 hour HD/SD capacity) but I still have still only say 5 hours left, will it split a new recording between different areas of the discs - and wouldn't it need 3 lasers to record 2 and playback one.

    Anyone? Before the cat gets killed.
    Thanks.

    I guess I must have overlooked the obvious and it possibly turned out to be a stupid question. Something for another forum site if I knew one.
