    Let's see, it's coming out of Winter in parts of Australia so maybe you had been visiting there? Or maybe Antarctica?

    Last night, I put the HDD in a zip lock bag and placed it in the refrigerator (37F). This morning plugged it into the power supply cable and I heard it "click" and the motor started up. Quickly copied all the files to another HDD and I am currently running the WD diagnostic's. During the extended test, the program aborted. There is an option to write all "1's" to it and will do that then send it away.
    Good deal! That's worked once or twice for me as well.
