As hard drive capacities increase, the power required to run those drives increases as well. WD Caviar Green drives make it possible for energy-conscious customers to build systems with higher capacities and the right balance of system performance, ensured reliability, and energy conservation.
I bought 2 x MX100 256GB SSD drives.
Both when plugged in fail the SMART 180 attribute on starting the computer.
I have tried emailing for support with no luck..
Has anyone seen this type of failure before, and do I need to get the drives replaced?
Any assistance or thoughts appreciated.
I had Samsung drives previously and never had any issues at all.
Any ideas to stabilize this now? How odd.
I apologize ahead of time, as I am not super techy.
