Now where did i read about that serious bug with certain WD drive models?And yes,this bug could kill a motherboard.I believe there is a patch/firmware availible for that.Sorry but i cant remember any more details.

ps. Sorry for the bad english ;)

My external WD hard drive crashed on me for no reason. I think the only place I ended up finding it on my system was through Sandra, but even there it knew there was something wrong. I had the 80 gig USB drive, and they replaced it with a 120 gig lighup USB/Serial drive.
