Hi, i buy my first wd digital hdd. ( i always used seagate).
As my very old(2003) 80 ide gigabyte is slow with more 50000 hours and with 66 reallocated sector count. I search a substitute ide hdd. I found in ebay a seller(enterprise seller). Sell a wd2500aajb new cheap (30e with sipping).
I recieve the hdd, and is manufacture in november 2012. Smart tell me is perfect and with 0 hour of use.(totally new as announce say).
And then my nightmare begins. I download acronnis to clone the old 80gb ide. And when only left 7minutes to finish. They show me an error.“error wrirte disk 3 sector x”. I think the guilty is the 80 ide so, i cancel and pass a scandisk to the 80gb. They found errors and fix it. Ok i think. Another clone, and message returns, this time i click in ignore all. Finally the computer finish and reset.
And computer says “smart bad backup your data and replace the hdd.”
¿? I go to windows to view smart… 1490 sector count reallocated!!!
Now the wd webpage says my new hdd is out of warrantine. Expired in december 2014. I open a suport ticket to ask to
actualize the warrantite with the ebay facture when i not know is broken. In the other hand i send a ebay seller a question asking the options, but i sure he not have more hdd. Here are holydays until monday, so i sure wd not repond and ebay seller not respond me. Until next week.
Wd cover me with warrantine?. I not really sure :(. I can’nt open rma now.
