animating a hard disk as a beginner

Posted: April 21, 2011
I want to do a short animated video tutorial on the topic: disk space management system with application in nanotechnology.
The first part of the tutorial is to start with a little introduction on what a hard disk is.That is where the animation of the hard disk comes in.First of all,d hard disk is to be shown,then it will be shown as an open hard disk with its parts visible.The parts do not need to be labeled.The animated hard disk has to be spinning.I know it is not easy to tell if the hard disk is spinning in real life but i want my video tutorial to show how it spins.I really do not know how to start but i am currently learning animation.It is a little difficult for me.Please i need help.
