Bought new, bigger drive. Not cheap but great experience.
Ditto. Bought two with 6.2a software. Installed 7/2/07. 6.3e update late August. Both units nothing but trouble since. Last night I removed the 6.3e contaminated 320GB drive and replaced it with the original (7/6/04) 40 GB Maxtor drive with 6.2a software.
Today the 6.3e contaminated 160 GB was replaced with the original (9/17/04) 40 GB Western Digital drive with the 6.2a software.
When users of this forum have blessed
the software upgrade
that will soon follow 6.3e I will swap out the 40s for new larger drives, connect the phone lines to get the update. And if it don't work, back to 40 GB and 6.2a.
