Embodiments of the invention provide a disk drive capable of preventing the deterioration of performance. In one embodiment, a disk drive includes a disk medium; a head capable of performing a read/write operation for accessing the disk medium to read information from and to write information to the disk medium; a head controller for controlling the position of the head so that the head describes a substantially spiral trajectory relative to the disk medium; and a controller capable of controlling the head controller, of performing a read/write operation for reading or writing information with reference to an identifier table associating sector identifiers identifying sectors on a specified track with logical block addresses, and of creating an identifier table for a track to be accessed next during the read/write operation.
