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...
