most likely based on drives coming in for recovery with same symptoms RELO list is full. RMA the drive. if there is data on there that you must have, find data recovery company.

The warranty will not be voided if you use a reputable data recovery firm.
WDC will not perform data recovery on RMA'd disks. If you send them a faulty drive with data on it, you will get a blank disk back.

Whenever I buy an external drive, I get 2 of 'em. And the 2nd disk contains a duplicate of the first. A backup!
Consider the cost of the 2nd disk as insurance and data-recovery. Much much cheaper to keep backups than to have to deal with the hassle of running analysis utilities or frantically posting on web forums looking for a solution to a crashed disk. And a backup will pretty much guarantee you don't lose years of irreplacable work! A backup means 2 distinct and physically separate copies of the material you wish to save.
