Dear All,

As subject, please refer to the photos below:*FFLZ68f7o_D/item.JPG?rot=1

Anyone same as me??? I’m scared to use them in regards to their reliability! (Sob)

Best Regards,



Thank you for your kind advise, cuernudo!

Thanks for your reply too, Awopero!

To fzabkar: It seems you need to log in to view, have replace the WD links, tq. 

This is NOT normal, a brand new drive should not have any damage or rust. Take back to the store and ask for a replacement. Do not use this drive, it might damage your system.

As cuernudo says this is not normal, replace it.

Your links result in “Permission Denied”.
