Last month, I bought a Caviar Black WD1001FALS
my system has Gigabyte P35-DS3
I installed the Caviar, my PC detected it well and I used Disk Manager to format the disk in Windows 7 with MBR method.
The format ran well, but the problems ocurred when I started copy files from my older HDD, them my PC got crash.
Since that moment, the Caviar maked strange noise and the POST period took long time to pass.
After a few restart, my computer couldn’t detect the Caviar.
I upgrade the BIOS FW to F14, but it’s still the same
I really disappointed with my first (or may be the only) WD HDD.
My Caviar now is only used as a paper-weght :mansurprised:
