Smaller drives don't seem to have enough value to be marketable anymore.
The scrap place I was at the other day was sorting drives, all tested bad
from some rma type place, and anything smaller than 3 GB was going in a
gaylord (heavy corrigated paper box that just fits on a pallet). It was
almost completely filled by the end of the day, and that is one heck of a
lot of drives, a rough guess is about 4,000, so it must have weighed more
than a ton.
