Interesting--in a scary sort of way. I'm as sure as I can be without taking the time to look that I put a Western Digital drive in there when the old one died. I have no recollection at all of what brand the old drive was, but it may have been WD as well. But "Scorpio Blue" doesn't ring a bell for me. I do recall that I wanted to put a 500GB drive in that laptop, but 320GB was the biggest it could take so I went with that.

I said to heel with it, took the loss and replaced the drive with a different manufacturer.

... maybe it was Seagate...

Yeah that third failure took out not only the laptop drive, but also my portable backup... I lost a year's worth of personal data in that one.
OUCH! That hurts...
