Brand new drive. I got it partitioned then when I when to format it did nothing. It did nothing for a long time and it kept doing nothing. It spins up but even bios doesn’t see the drive now.
I bought this hard drive through Amazon.com . The packaging isn’t really secure. The box itself is solid and had a pretty good set of cardboard pieces to hold the hard drive in place but it had no secure type of seal to indicate if the box had ever been opened. I mean who knows, Someone could have opened it, dropped the hard drive and placed it back inside. No way to tell. I have contacted Amazon and awaiting response. OEM packaging
