Bought this internal HDD for my win7 desktop @ Amazon.in to use as member disc in RAID1 Mirror. but failed repeatedly.
CHKDSK shows no error but takes longtime complete. CHKDSK/r to mark corrupt sectors went thro’ (took 3 hours). Tried win7 format/ partion/read write no problem but fails as RAID disc Finaly Drive shows error when done ‘quick test’ using WD DLGDIAG disc diagnostic software as below: I dont know what is the real problem,
When checked in WD site, it says Under warranty till Dec 2015, but does not register this online for RMA. any solutions will be appreciated…
