the compatibility list has it down as not working. It is working fine for the moment I haven't checked why this particular drive is listed as not working, but some drives will work initially, but not last for long before problems arise. I suggest you have a Plan B ready. I have a seagate 1.5TB sata...

My username is inactive?

I have just had to register again as it said my username was inactive, even though I have activated it. Is there a time limit if I don't post for a while?
