See if you can still send em back for their warrantee and get a new hard drive shipped to you.

I have had a few hard drives die, I send em to Seagate/Maxtor/Samsung/WD and I get a new drive back in a few days. Really awesome.

I prefer Seagate hard drives myself for the reliability.

X is right, whatever you do get one with a good warrany behind it, I just when threw a 500 gig drive from seagate that wasn't 6 month old, sent it back, should have it on Monday, purchased a samsung, 500 gig, very quiet, reliabitity so far. I was a stone seagate fan until that brand drive die, when this one come back I'm goimg to put it to the test, good luck with your choice Carpo.

Another for Seagate

I was WD but they do have many problems. I have a SATA 500GB Seagate right now and I love it. I am actually going to pick up another for backup. It's only $100 retail.

was got through a 3rd party and hes no longer about, so im boned :(
So? Go to the website for the manufacturer, find the warrantee service and send it back. I have bought many hard drives OEM and box retail and all of them have at one point or another been returned and a new drive has been sent back to me.

That is perfect, exactly what I have. Though I might need to get the 1TB drives soon, the way I am using space.
