What do you want help with ?
Just do advanced RMA, and your good to go. (That is, they send you a HD, then you stick your HD in that box, and ship it back. It costs like $10 or so the last time I looked.)

Your only other option is to continue to use the HD until you get a SMART error...

1. Please do not butcher the English language. Its "some" not "sum" and "please" not "plz"
2. So basically you want our help convincing seagate to give you an RMA? How would we do that? Just contact them already and tell them you have 2000 bad sectors.
