I'm with modyourmac on this one all the way. It's just easier to get it RMA'd. And working Tier one support (being one of few that can backup the 'support' title) I can tell you that many people look for shortcuts. If you get it from Samsung you will atleast be guaranteed a fresh drive, not a spare that the distributor has laying around. If there is a problem after that, you atleast know where to go from there.

Call Samsung, scream till you get Tier 2 atleast. The dreaded 'supervisor' word immediatly may have you speak to Mr. Dialtone, so take it lightly. It will pay off.
