WD Caviar Black Caught on FIRE *pictures

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
THANK GOD i had folder duplication on in my WHS. My hard drive was the last thing i pictured catching on fire. I had the hard drive cage on my desk out side of the case when it happened. I saw some smoke rising then some sparks followed by some flames. Put some burn marks on the top of the samsung. RMA time.

Well, WD Blacks are hotter (and noisier) than the Samsung F3s (if that's the one you're using) but I can't imagine one catching on fire...
Might have been too much friction on the disk from the head. RMA indeed.

What are the odds of a HDD catching on fire? Honestly, this is the first time I ever heard of this.
