    I couldn't agree with you more - I was only addressing the concern of a previous post.

    I've been running into bad blocks on my IBM 75GXP 30.0G... I've fdisked it abunch of times over about 12 months and now I'm doing a scandisk (with surface scan) about once a week ... just to be safe....

    I have no cooling for my HDD but MBM5 says my CPU is 37C (I have 2 80mm deltas cooling my case).... should I concider a WD to transfer the data to? I'm a bit worried.... can I RMA this? hasn't failed .... yet....... :confused:

    Contact your nearest IBM dealer and see what they say.

    i'd recommend keeping a reliable backup of all critical data, but this goes without saying for all drives, as mentioned earlier, no drive lasts forever...

    the comment tweak got regarding the Cirrus chips sounds like it may well have been the very source of the problem, as from memory, the IBM drives do use Cirrus chip technology, so as far as IBM having to fix it, it really could have been the fault of a thrid party chip manufacturer...

    nice note to add though...

    also there was mention of drive temperatures being coolest in ibm, from my recollection, the temps recorded from the drive are internal operating temperatures, and my IBM drive that died, was kept at around 20 idle up to 30-35 heavy load, as i used 2x80mm fans to keep it cool... the real heat problem - as the cirrus chip scenario may point to - is the heat of the control circuit; which is external to the monitoring of the drive temperature. take a heavily loaded IC add 20 degrees induced by the adjacent drive platter's heat, and u know that those chips are gunna be warm...

    and as we all know, life of any electrical component is shortened when it runs hotter - hence we buy 20kg HSFs with 7k fans that pump out 48dBa of noise for our cpu's, coz we don't want em to just...die...or fry rather...

    Whatīs that clicking sound? I have 2 GXP drives and after I installed my latest 60Gb Iīve discovered that when Iīm about too close down the computer itīs almost like it restarts and power up the disc 3 times? Is this the famous clicking sound?
    I canīt afford too buy a backup disc now :(

    The clicking sound sounds more like *tick...tick...tick....tick...tick*
