Hi all, My Barracuda 500GB 7200.11 elected to brick itself on Thursday night (24th June). Number:Serial N°:Model:Part N°:Firmware:DateCode:(manufac. date):SiteCode:PurchaseDate:FailedDate:OEM/RETAIL:UserName:Country of User:fail reason/fine:OS:PSU ================================================================================================================================================================ 9QM6****:ST3500320AS:9BX154-303:SD15:09156:KRATSG:2009-04-??:2010-06-24:OEM:Genwedge:UK:no detect in bios:WinXp:Zalman 600w modular PSU. Appears my drive stayed alive far longer than perhaps you'd expect. I can't quite remember the Purchase date, but I can find it out as I have the original PO somewhere. Cheers, Richard
