I've got a proglem with my new WD HDD and I would like to ask you for help.
I've bought WD Scorpio Blue 640GB a replaced with it my previous Hitachi factory HDD. The Hitachi HDD was perfectly calm, I didn`t even know that it spins. The WD HDD spins all the time at full speed. It never slows and thats really annoying. There are several topic where people have the same problem, but there is no solution working for me.
I`ve tried to:
maybe even something more I cant remeber now, but the HDD is still spinning. My problem isnt clickinkg or any other head parking issue. It just still spinns.
If anyone of you can provide me with a solution (link etc.), I will be gratefull. I have one 3,5 WD external drive which is not doing this sound so I hope WD is not producing just 2,5'' HDDs with this sound. Its not usual (compared to my other 3 notebooks I have/used to have).
Just to make sure, I have a clean install of OS X Lion. In Activity Monitor there is no CPU or disk activity, but it still keeps spinning...
Thanks for any help!

Try running a test with Disk Utility. The link bellow might also help.

Thanks for the link, I will try that.
I've already tried the "Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for DOS (CD)" option, but I was not able to boot from it. It seems to me that its only Windows compatible.
