Check the other thread. Basically, try the drive in other devices. Not being able to spin means big problems. Call and get an RMA. They'll ship you one back.
I got my first one from Fry's and the replacement direct from Singapore (still had the new drive smell). It works great now.
I agree with that. I tried it in CF-USB adapters, Multi-Card Adapters, CF-PCMCIA, Direct in Laptop. Nothing worked. It must be a bad drive. I requested the RMA last Thursday. Still waiting...
Funny you should mention Fry's (it should be a four letter word)(oh wait, it is!)
I went by Fry's and they had the 4GB Hitachi for a great price. Not surprisingly, they had none in stock. Went to another Fry's and the price suddenly went up $75 and the only one they had was already open. NO THANKS!
