trifid i thought that happened on a molex y-splitter in your rig? what am i on about i suppose you do know what happened better than me.

not really. although Seagate now owns Maxtor, the Seagate and Maxtor drives are still different, and they both sell their own drives under their own name.
at least for now, Maxtor drives are the same as they were, and Seagate drives are the same as they were. although that may change as time goes on
apokalipse is right. look up the word "subsidiary". maxtor is simply owned by seagate but operates almost least for now.

It was on my splitter, but at a friends house on his cheap PSU. I thought it could have been the splitters fault, as my cd drive went on the same spiltter - it was a cheap cd drive that was slowly dieing.

To be fair on WD, I probally just had a bad drive from them, and it doesn't represent their quality as a whole.

All my WD drives where like that. Not to mention they where so light it felt like i would crush them in my hand.
