Samsung HDD and "Check M.C. ecc error" in HUTIL 2.10 in Hard Disk Drives (HDD) Posted January 27, 2008 · Report reply PS Oh yeah, I almost forgot. On completion of the test, HUTIL recommends doing "ERASE DISK" which is basically a low-level format, and then running the test again. That seems weird but I think I might try it (although I would feel kinda crappy if it "fixed" the problem because I'd feel like the drive is actually faulty and I would only postpone the inevitable). Has anyone tried this procedure it recommends? Yeah, I erased my F1 1TB in HUTIL - No change. It still reported m.c. error.
