Just for information - I used the WD Data Life Guard disk last night - blitzed the existing partition, copied my C:\ drive partition over, and presto! All working, scores around 32000 in Sandra 2002 consistently. It seems that FDISK, and partition magic don't work well on these drives, but the DLG suite works very well.
I must say that these drives go like stink, very quick, my machine is noticeably brisker now.
