    My macbook's hard disk broke (again) and the main macbook warranty ran out in January 2009.

    I'm thinking I can take the HDD back to Hitachi?
    The hard drive is dated March 2008, I thought hard drives come with 5 years warranties? Even a 1 year warranty on the hard drive would cover this...

    When I went to hitachi's RMA website, I entered all the serial numbers I could find but it gave 'invalid serial number' for each of them...

    So is there anything I can do with this hdd?

    My Model number is hts5416*****
    and it isn't located here on the hitachi model number website: http://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/support/drive_labels/snpn.htm

    The hard drive in your MacBook book is an OEM drive and is only warrantied through Apple. It has no warranty from Hitachi.

    Thanks for the info. I guess I'm screwed, even though they already replaced a defunct hard drive for my macbook... It seems crazy not to have a warranty for the hdd though... it's only a year old..

    Well, I've already ordered a new faster hdd =]
