Well, they want 1000 dollars or more.
What about putting it in the freezer while I use it?
Would't the heat of the drive and the coldness of the freezer, or
fridge, which I could adjust if someone gave me some guidance, keep it
at a steady rather cold temp?
The flat wire is long enough, and the power wire can be any length I
want it to be.

If it's clicking it means it does a rezero every time it retries a read
It does that on ECC errors and also on CRC errors on the interface.
Neither is necessarily caused by a hardware failure.
Bad power supply, overheated drive or bad data cable can cause this too.
Every single time I've ever had a hard drive clicking it was caused by a
failure of the drive, I've never even heard of it caused by those other
issues, with the exception being a couple of early very hot running 10K
rpm drives. Bad drive is 99% the reason.
I'm not sure now if it was Radio Shack or Sears-- but I bought a <$20
set that has about a dozen tips for jeweler's sized unusual screw
heads. There are a couple Torx Plus tips in there & I've taken apart
a bunch of hard drives with them. [I've been taking them apart to
play with the magnets--- not as strong as I expected in the newer
Curiosity got the best of me-- this isn't my set, but Sears has this
18pc set for $20;
Sears item #00941709000 Mfr. model #63518
[no torx plus but a T6, T7, T8, & T9 size Torx]
Ah -- Here it is- Radio Shack, $15

NO! Do NOT do that.
Some of those magnets can crash together fast enough to shatter. If they
shatter, the small pieces (also sharp), do not have enough mass to be
strongly attracted to whatever is left of the magnet. They can fly away
at very high velocity, and cause serious injuries (to eyes, for example).
Also can cause death if ingested, google for the recent news reports
of a toddler killed by magnets from Bionicle if I remember correctly,
attracted to each other through neighboring bends in the child's

has anyone ever pinched the fingers ? i bought some of these neodynium
"warning extra strong" magnets from hardware store and skeptical i tried to
pinch my fingers and have had no luck, well if that is the label to give
such actions :)
