Western Digital’s Caviar drive has laid an egg: The company says it will recall approximately 400,000 of the 6.8GB-per-disk desktop hard drives because of a faulty chip.
The chip, which affects the disk drive motor, causes problems to erupt in about six to twelve months, observers said.
The faulty chip was incorporated into approximately 1 million drives manufactured between August 27 and September 24. About 400,000 have been sold to date.
