    Recheck your Hard Drive with Western Digital tool and try to recover it.

    If you even go to warranty for 4kb bad, they will just do that, they will try to repair it instead of replacing with a new one. So just do it yourself and save the time. And I am also pretty sure it can be software repaired.

    I had two 500GB Green, after using two month in a file sharing server, both went down, I kinda hate WD ever since.

    There are other methods of claiming a warranty (not honest methods I must confess), but they do work. I wouldn't recommend you to use them if you are not already familiar with 'em and not willing to take a great risk.

    WD Green ato slow. Amarta primary drive hishabe use kortam, akhon only storage ar F3 primarily.

    ¤ And I hope no one minds me asking, but seeing as the issue is resolved I wanted to ask a question of my own. BD te kon kon laptop HDD pawa jai? Ar konta bhalo hobe in your opinion? PS3 jailbreak korbo to soon so akta kina lagbe.

    Edit: Priority goes to cache memory instead of RPM. RPM doesn't make much difference in the PS3, so 5400 is fine.
