1. ran WD quick scan -- no problem
2. opened up the box, repositioned the cables on the motherboard
(actually, it was a bit loose)
3. ran WD thorough scan -- no problem!
so, i'm hoping it was a loose cable ....
But, I am going to replace the darn cables (i have no clue why this
local retailer likes to bundle and clip the cables to they end up with
'nicks in them)
I hope the system stays happy (for awhile at least)!
Thanks for all the responses!
