I bought 2, 320GB WDC internal Drives, and within last 2 months, 1 have totally failed (cant even format the drive) and now the other one which I used as boot disk is starting to show the same problem.
Crashed after booting
SCANDISK repaired alot of bad clusters
I think its only time to wait until the drive is totally died again like the first one. The first one I’m using Windows Vista 32bit, the second one I use Win 7 32bit. All from clean install.
Funny thing is, I have 2 Hitachi HDD, 1 is 60 GB external HDD which already last for 6 years and still operatable very well, and the other is 500GB internal which peform very well since last year. I have been failed by WD 2 times, I’ll never want to take that risk again. Oh yeah my WDC passport also died too, no idea why, but thats another thread issue.
