They don't make hard drives like they used to.
It was only 8 months ago that I purchased a Western Digital 320 GB external USB hard drive, for the purpose of bringing my uncompressed music collection to the office, and listening to it on my computer in the background with headphones. Today, this hard drive has already failed. It just does a clicking noise when being powered up. It has only been moved a few times between home and office. Fortunately, all the data is backed up at home, many times, and the drive has a 3 year warranty, but it is an annoyance to have to ship this drive back to the manufacturer for a replacement.
