This hard drive is making noises, but it's brand new out of the box. It makes that old hard drive grinding sound now and then. Not a clicking, but the sounds you would hear with hard drives back in the old days. So, my question is, does this particular hard drive just make noise because it's a louder model and/or because it's a larger volume ( 1TB drive ) or should I RMA it with newegg?

I couldn't stop laughing when I heard those sounds lol! Anyway, my drive isn't make any of those sounds. Don't laugh, but the sound(s) are similar to the ones that a computer from Fallout New Vegas or FO3 would make. I've never heard these sounds before so I wasn't sure. Several people on newegg.com said these sounds were normal hard drive sounds. But, since you're saying it's best to replace it since it should make sounds. I'm with you, so I guess I'll RMA it. Thanks for the help. I love the site!
