I don't get it: 2 different 120GB WD (8MB) harddrives bad within three days of hooking them up! I really don't understand it though. The drive was hooked up as slave and after about three days of use, it simply stops being recognized by BIOS. I can hook any other of my extra drives in the same configuration for many days with no problems. The drive won't work in any configuration anymore in any computer in the house. Has anyone else had issues with these drives (model WD1200JB) before? Luckily Newegg is good about RMAs: they are going to refund the money. Newegg offered to replace it again, but I'm not too confident with the product now. I guess I'll just have to get a Maxtor or something. It's really a pain in the butt because I was using the drive for backups and to store HD images from the other two computers in the house. Luckily I'm paranoid and have another backup drive (USB2 enclosure) that I can use until the new one comes in. *sigh* OK, I've vented enough.
