I just came across a 1999 Fujitsu 4.3GB 512kb cache 5400rpm 3.5" HDD still in its box. Suggestions?
Or do I have another paperweight among a few other old IDE drives I use to keep so the wind doesn't blow all my stuff away. =D (Damn, I have more RAM than this HDD has...)

You have a new paperweight. Turn it in to a recyling center maybe? Yeah, I have a few of them myself. Heck I have a old WD Caviar 340megabyte drive in the closet. If I remember correctly, it has a read/write speed of about 4mbps, and a burst rate of about 18mbps....
Fujitsu drives in those days were not known for their reliability, put them down on the bench too hard and you have a paperweight, that could explain why it's still in it's box. Would you believe that drive when new cost AU$469.00, I can buy 3 x 1TB for the same money now and get change.
