  2. Around 2-3 months ago I discovered my primary HDD (WD-1002FEAX-00Z3A0, it's a western digital) had 1 write error count. I kept checking everyday (I'm serious) if the value was increasing but it didn't until today. (I did a chkdsk right after I discovered the write error count. Here is the log: Today I checked the value as always but to my surprise, the value is 0 (it decreased from 1). I don't understand. Is the HDD going to fail sooner? If not, what happened to that write error count? I'm so confused. Any help is appreciated. Thanks... SMART:
  3. I just moved from Germany to the USA. I packed all my HDs in anti-static bubblewrap and into a pelican case. Re-assembled my PC on arrival. All was well (or so I thought). It seems that I have two drives that, when reading from them, the PC hard freezes. No blue screen, no debugging dump when I reboot.. One drive stores music, and a tip off is that it stutters, it seems the drive has trouble serving up an MP3, and eventually, after enough reads, the machine freezes. I have tried 3 different SMART monitors, all say the drives are fine.. even after they lock up my pc. Does this sound drive related or controller related? Any diagnostics I can run to isolate the issue? Thanks, CE
