Hmm, I've had two WD drives fail in the past few years, the most recent
about a month ago. I called their RMA line and was told the warranty
is *two* years; my drive was about a year and a half old. So I got a
nice replacement, and all is well.
Perhaps it makes a difference where you purchased your drive (mine was
from NewEgg), but you might want to double-check to see if you're
really out of luck...
