hard drive ERRORS?

Post by W. Scott Gran » Sun, 28 Feb 1999 04:00:00



Does anyone know what this message means

hdc: read_intr: status=0x49 {DriveReady DataRequest Error}
hdc: read_intr: error=0x04 {DriveStatusError}
hdc: read_intr: status=0x59 {DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest Error }

hdc: read_intr: error=0x40 {Uncorrectable Error }, LBAsect=1770483,
sector 1638435
end_request: I/O error, dev 16:02, sector 1638435

Is the hard drive failing? I have search dejanews and not found anything
that gave me an answer.

Any ideas?

Look at the sector number.  If you have several instances of the same number,
then it may just be a bad block.  If the numbers vary, then it may be a disk
going bad.

1. hard drive ERRORS?

I have a problem similar to the one that Scott has but I think its just a
bad sector on my hard drive (2.1G WD).  Got any tips (other than
replacement) for configuration (RH 6.0) so that I don't get notified of the
error every second (literally).  Fsck knows there is an error but it just
wants to continue without fixing it.  This thing sounds really bad so I
don't know how much longer its going to last....
