    Western Digital is good with HD returns and or repairs anyways. I sent them an old HD from 1995, they contacted me asking if anything was on it, i said no, asked me for the origional receipt, which i did not have, and the lady said "Is it important to get a new one", i say "no", so she says "Well, would you like a new one, we have a few lying around according to this" *typing in background*, all i need is a shipping address (I had forgotten to attach it). Gave it to her, and she said i would get one within a few weeks.

    Few weeks later Fedex has a package for me with a brandnew WD HD. Same model number. Worked like a charm as well :D

    I must be doing something wrong. 15 years using WD drives and I never had one die on me. I have some 4 gig drives I still pull out and use for "play time". I threw away the ones under a gig.

    I only had one die on me, and it was a refurbished drive that I had gotten for free. Even then, I was able to use inexpensive recovery software to remove all the data from it.
