Sounds of a Hard Drive Dying

Dead Drives
Hard Drive Dying Dance Track Contest - Gizmodo
DJ Hitachi Global Storage has dropped six new tracks on us. Head Stuck to Platter, Slow Spindle Motor, and Head Damage 1-4. Yep, these are all the authentic sounds of hard drives experiencing meltdowns. Or, as Hitachi artfully puts it: “There are various noises that may indicate a failing hard drive. If you are experiencing any of the noises, please contact the technical support center at: 888-426-5214”

Hahaha. Hitachi has released a series of mp3's containing the sounds a dead hard drive makes.

Even better, Gimodo has a remix contest using the sounds. Here are the winners.
