    ill try google..i tried ebay..every seller that has replied so far says that the hard drive is "already packed" wtf open the god damn box and check it for me lol 3 sellers say the same thing so far! and one of them told me they were gonna charge me 10 bucks just to check the number for me..which might not even be useful to me..man i got ****ed..would you guys have gotten mad at that or just paid the 10 bucks?

    Tell him you'll pay, then if it's the wrong one just stiff the lazy ******.

    Was it your fault the drive crapped out?
