    It could be normal... how loud is it?
    If you got the 7200, then it may cause some slight noise or vibration

    If you feel it is defective, you should try to return it under warranty

    It will spin as all HDDs do, but if it's quite audible then I would suspect it could be a faulty drive.

    Otherwise, if a drive is saying SHHHHH it may be telling me to ****.
