AFD on Scorpio Blue?

OK this is weird;

 

I have:
- WD5000BEVT-00A0RT0 (500GB 2.5" SATA-II Scorpio Blue) (with a 2010 Mfg. Date)

- WD3200BEVT-22ZCT0 (320GB 2.5" SATA-II Scorpio Blue) (with a 2008 Mfg. Date)

 

on the same line with the registration info for these disks
on the registered products page  is a link to "Restricted Downloads"

 

which jumps to the bottom of the same page where the following is displayed:

WD Caviar Green SATA Hard Drive

WD Scorpio Blue SATA Mobile Hard Drive

 * WD Align Windows - Powered by Acronis (45.4 MB)

WD Caviar Green / GP

 * WD Align Windows - Powered by Acronis (45.4 MB)

why would the partition need to be aligned if it's not AFD?

Re: AFD on Scorpio Blue?

The "BEVT" Scorpio drives are not Advanced Format, but the "BPVT" Scorpios are. Perhaps that accounts for the confusion?
