      I have a WD 3.5" drive, 7200rpm. 8mb cache, ATA133, in cabin.

      Works under -20C no problem. We had out first day above freezing (0C) in 6 weeks last week. Car was driven every day and didn't skip a beat. Also 6 weeks 6 blizzards so the roads are all snowy and icy so lots of bumps and lateral g's and no skips. I like.

        This could be a good thread for "environmentally immune" hard drives

        Does anyone know what the guys at Pioneer use to keep drives working in freezing temperatures? Some of their dash units have hard drives for copying music to.

          There are automotive grade harddrives. I believe Hitachi?!

          Basically made for harsh conditions and made to prevent the heads from banging into the platters.

            Mine is a 250GB Seagate 7200 8mb. Starts having problems around -10C. I had a WD 100GB that was about the same.
