Well, I'm posting from it now. It's fast as ever. But I am going to make a clone of my partition and just use the 500GB Samsung HDD I just ordered today and RMA this one. I'm contacting WD right now to see what the say.
I think a good fresh format would be good. I'll just install all my games to the faster hard drive when I get it back.
I can't believe I managed to bring it back to life...
