Oh, when you post to your own thread we think it has been worked on. Just edit the original post instead maybe.

Smart tools are OK but I prefer getting the OEM diags from the company that made the drive. If not just get ultimage boot cd and use generic diags. The OEM have some more advanced tests and very long test to help diag the drive.

My guess, it looks like smart has not been enabled.
