    You need to have E* replace it. As long as you never opened up the 921 they should still replace it even if the warranty is up.

    I've had a total of 8 different 921's and each time they replaced it at no cost to me, long after the one year warranty was up.

    If you tried to do it yourself how would you load the software? It comes as a download off the satellite and needs special partitions. A new drive would need this special formatting before it could be useful.
