What the heck is going on with this drive??!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
An older Seagate from my gf's parent's PC has been making snap, crackle popcorn sounds for as long as we have been dating......about 3 years. I was going to handle the return/exchange for them since it is covered by the Seagate 5 year warranty(I ran the SN and it shows up as in warranty for another year).

Ok. Good, I hook it up to my pc to test with Seatools, so it can verify the problem to help with the RMA.........and it doesn't make a single popcorn sound and passes all the tests!?!???!?!

I had this hooked up in her new windows 7 rig to move some files over, and it popped and crackled in that PC as well. Now since I got it here, it is running great.

Maybe the drive is rattling the case somehow.Try transferring some files while the drive is outside of the case,see if it happens then.If it does then buy a new case.
