I get my anti-static bags from my local microcenter. I believe Radio shack Carries anti-static bags as well. Just check your local pc store, I am sure they have some.

IIX does not exist. You can only use "I" to make something one less than a number once, or you could have stupid things like IIIIV meaning 1.

VIII is perfectly correct.

Latin is the most useless language in the world BTW.
LOL

Latin is the basis of almost every language in use. That's where the term "latin-root" comes from

The dude did write out the Roman numerals wrong, but you didn't have to be an ass about it when you corrected him.

dr4gon Nice, but as a tip for RMAs, they don't like buble wrap or peanuts. Only solid foam. Anything else and you risk your RMA getting rejected (from personal experience with seagate).

Free bump.

jkim1162 I recommend anti-static bubble wrap if you don't have the anti-static bag in which your HD originally came with.

  8. IIX (lol it's shorter than VIII)
  9. IX
  10. X
I=1
V=5
X=10

IV is 4 because the I comes before the V, so it's V-I or 5-1
VI is 6 because the I comes after the V, so it's V+I or 5+1

Btw, + Rep for the guide. Doubt anyone will ever do that though... When I shipped my stuff for EVGA step-up, they just bubble wrapped the box and shipped it.
