I have heard that you need to send Maxtor drives in a anti-static bag and between foam rubber...Supposedly if you send it in styrofoam peanuts they will send it back to you...;) ...Just something I heard...:D

im sure If I use packaging that another new hard drive has come in them itll be fine as no manufacturer is going to supply thier drives is rubbish packaging.
