i don't like the sound of that. Did you mistreat that drive in any way? too hot? i've got the same disk on my hands here. Bought it after a cheap samsung F1 1tb crapped out on me after just 1month. What errors do you have, since you want to check it for bad sectors? CRC errors?

Hi Hawkeye22 I was just getting ready to reply to your email. Well the HDDScan didnt work for me. I just RMA it to WD, I should have my new HD by the fifth. What I ended up doing was taking each HD and tested them on another computer that I own, and I found the culpret. Thank you for the effort ....
