WD: UDMA CRC Errors and Reallocated Sectors

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi

I got a WD Caviar Black 1TB (WD1001FALS) and according to SMART, I got:

* one "Reallocated Sector"
* one "Reallocated Event"
* 26 UDMA CRC Errors

in my drive but it's a "Pass" for the "SMART overall-health self assessment test". I think it's because of these, I'm having problems with Grub, and thus can't boot up any OS at all. Are these problems serious?

According to "Warranty Services", my drive is still "In Limited Warranty". Would I be eligible for a replacement?

FYI: I'm running Ubuntu 11.10.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

Could be a bad SATA cable or SATA port. Try swapping the cable and see if the number gets larger.
