I have had no less than three WD drives fail on me within the last year. First I had a 350 gb My Passport drive start developing bad sectors, totally destroying my iTunes library, so I revert to using an older 1 tb raid drive for the same library, but now I am having issues with it being recognized when turned on, spinning crazily when the system is fired up, or simply not being mounted in windows.
And the last straw? I just bought a 1 tb My passport drive at Wal Mart TONIGHT. I take it home, plug it in and do a thorough scandisk on the hard drive only to find out it already has bad sectors on it…750 of them, in fact.
Sorry, this is just too much. I will have to take my drive needs to another company. I cannot afford this sink hole.
