Hi everybody! Sorry for my bad english, but i’m an Italian User, and i want to write to you my experience with my WD15EARS. I bought this green WD online, and yesterday it arrived at my home. I was using my PC, so then i decided to hibernate my PC and plug the HDD. After i do that, my HDD was recognized from my PC, and it seems to work.
I started to copy a lot of GB, when it arrives near at 100GB, the HDD stopped working, and next i received a error message from Windows 7 ( when i was copying data ). The system was becoming unstable, so i decided to reboot the system.
At the reboot, the BIOS is becoming slowly, and it doesn’t recognise my HDD. Usually it is recognized in BIOS, but at the end, i received an error form it about the Port where i plugged it. I tried everything. Moving the jumper into 7-8 and 5-6, ( i read to do that in this forum ) but it doesn’t work. I heard that HDD work because when i approach my ear to the device, i heard the classic sound that it is turning. After a bit of minute that the BIOS try to recognise it, the HDD stop working, shutodowning itself.
Please Help me… how can i do? Should I go in RMA?
