-There are times when I try to play some music or a video from the drive, sometimes it just doesn't load. The player will open up, but the file is not being played.
I'm not really sure if that's normal or I should get a new drive quick.
The Seagate Barracuda drives i have heard lots of stories about none of them good
The Seagate Constellation drives on the other hand are sever grade drives
Sure they are not cheap but they dont have any problems with being unreliable
If you can spend that kind of money get a Constellation ES.2 ST33000650NS
