Drive developed a fault,
This review is from: Seagate OEM 500GB Barracuda 3.5 inch 7200.12 Internal Hard Disk Drive (7200RPM, SATA, 16MB Cache) (Electronics)
After first installing this drive, it worked without problems for about two weeks and I was actually very happy with it - it was fast and much quieter than my Samsung drive. However, one day it started making a beeping noise and became unreliable. In the end it was no longer detected by the computer and I had to return it for a refund.
On the upside, Amazon's return service was excellent. The return postage was prepaid and the refund was credited to my bank account within three days of posting.

Please could you tell me how many 'beeps' your PC gave out. 1,2,3 or more, and what OS you are using, many thanks

I have exactly the same problem with this drive after one year (seems to be common fault). Now I need to deal with Seagate manufacture warranty.
