Brand New SSD and Getting HD Tune Warnings

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just decided to do an upgrade to my system and one of the upgrades was a 480 GB Crucial M500 SSD. Everything went good, I installed Windows, got my drivers etc. and started installing my programs and games. Then last night I decided to reinstall HD Tune to do some tests, and make sure everything was alright, and in the health tab I get 2 warnings, 1 for Reallocated Event Count, and the other for Ultra DMA CRC Error Count. After seeing this I decided to run an Error Scan to see if it would find any errors, and none were found.

Is this something I should be worried about?

The re-allocated sector count is completely normal, red flag on a hard disk drive but nothing to worry about on an SSD at all (unless you see it suddenly skyrocketing). The CRC errors I'm honestly not familiar with when it comes to SSDs. Try downloading CrystalDiskInfo:

It'll give you a bit more accurate information on what is/isn't an issue with an SSD.

Ok so I downloaded and installed CrystalDiskInfo and it shows the Health Status of the drive and it says "Good 100%", so does that mean that the drive is ok? I don't seem to see anywhere saying what is/ isn't an issue with SSD's, but according to the health it's ok.

The CRC errors are very commin with a bad SATA cable. I have had the CRC error come up on both of my old hard disks and on my m4 SSD. Swap the cable and check to see if the number continues to increase. If it stays the same you are good to go. If it increases still then we might have an issue on our hands.

So I replaced the SATA cable with a brand new cable, and I'm going to keep an eye on the number to see if it goes up or not, hopefully it doesn't.

I didn't realize cables can ever go bad?

Just a quick update

It's been almost 2 weeks since I installed this SSD, and found the HD Tune errors, and since replacing the cable the number of errors has not increased. I think it's safe to say that changing the SATA cable fixed my problem! Thanks guys thumb.gif
