    Fill out the RMA form on the website, print out the shipping label, post it off. They'll send you a new/refurbished one.
    So, you want a piece of me? Take THAT!!!

    sigh, this has been said many times before. since when did hd manufacturers offer 1-1 exchange of hard drives?! depending on stock availability, it can take a few days, few weeks or up to a month.

    the way the bros here do is to buy a new hard disk, rescue the data off the spoilt hard disk, rma and then sell off the rma unit or the used new hard disk depending on your preference.

    The whole process was pretty fast for me for both WD and Seagate. Seems they sent a new one out the day after they received mine. But it's not always the case of course; depends on how busy they are, stock etc...
