        Maybe they've changed thier customer service policies in the
last couple of years, as I've not had to use it at all. When I did
6-7 years ago for the upgrade of the 1522's BIOS, i didn't have a
single problem.

        My mistake...I mistyped it. The drive is actually an 0664M1H
and it is 2gig. I've had this thing plugged up to PC's, Amiga's,
Mac's, you name it. I've had it roughly 7 years and it is one of the
best drives I ever had. My only complaint is that it runs a bit hot
and at the time I got it the terminator for it, which plugged into
the cable connector, was still pretty pricey. Then again, when I got
it in trade from someone, the drive itself was still about $1200.
IBM replaced it once under warranty without any problems whatsoever.
