I understand that I'm going to get a lemon or two in a batch. Just seems that lately I've had bad luck with new drives. I bought a Seagate because my Western Digital died after a week and then the Seagate I bought to replace the WD is making a lot of clicking noises. Also when I turn on the external with the Seagate it will boot up and freeze. I have to turn it off and on again for it to be functional. As bushwacker suggested, I'm going to RMA the drive. I bought a new WD and once it arrives, I'm hoping I can transfer all the data over to the new drive and not lose anything. I read on some sites that some people blame poor packing of the drives for the failures.
