What can I do to repair this hard disk?

Can I get an RMA?

Please help. Thank you.

Thanks for your information.

One more question:
Do I need to pack my HD if I choose the courier pickup service?
Can I just pass the HD to them without any packing?

Hi yes you need to pack it and put your information on the outside of the box . RMA number your return address, also I type up a letter for inside the box with my information and RMA number just to make sure they see it. If you need to know how to package it and other things you can look here. http://support.wdc.com/warranty/rmapacking.asp?custtype=end&lang=en
