western digitals are known to crash. lots are DOA.

please try all your jumpers and make sure that they are on teh right IDE channel

*snickers* we got a newbie here ;)

Anyway, western digital's are VERY picky about jumper settings. I guess you have both drives on the same cable? If so, make sure the seagate is set to master(master with a slave if there's that option) and the WD to slave. If the WD is solo, you could just remove the jumper.
