Ive been hearing some odd whining noises from my pretty new 800JB that seems to annoy me. I dont recall the noise before cuz I always blasted some good trance music, but right now, I dont have it on that loud and can actually hear something. ;)

any input would be great.

btw, this is different from the notorious "clicking" that ive read about on this board.

also, anyone had any experience with RMAing (or just customer support in general) with WD?

I have two 120 gig JB's, and neither of them make that noise. Not much noise at all, really... very quiet. I've had them for less than a week, though.

Just because a hard drive is noisy does not mean it's going to fail. Certain people can hear certain frequencys better than others can, so you may notice a sound from the drive that others do not hear.

This is very true, I mean, I had a drive crash today without making any noise at all. Thanks Western Digital!!!

To see my creative genius production that occured from todays events, see http://www.hondalive.net/ignorance.bmp

Note: I still like Western Digital.
