Yes, me again :S Well I'm having problems with the HDD and windows. It was working fine for a few days until I turned it on this morning.

What happens is that my pc doesn't seem to want to get to the windows screen and hangs on either a black screen after the loading bar or the "windows is starting up" screen. I have to unplug the HDD to get into windows.

I found the problem was actually the product itself. The HDD was faulty and when i took it back to the dealer I encountered 2 other people at the returns desk with the same HDD and same problems.

That will be a lesson to me next time not to go out and buy the cheapest hardware out there. I lost all my photos I took over the Christmas break and some recent work which I was biting myself not to bring up at the customer services desk.

If you're looking for a new HDD, I recommend staying away from these:
