Ultra DMA CRC Error Count

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a question about this. I bought a Western Digital 2TB drive in June 2012.

In January 2013, the Ultra DMA CRC Error Count read: Current 200, Worst 182, Threshold 0, Data 9789, Warning.

Today, October 2013, it reads: Current 200, Worst 73, Threshold 0, Data 13880, Warning.

So the Data number has increased and it's showing a warning. Is this a bad thing and should I replace this drive?

What program are you using to read the status of the drive? And can i have some screenshots?

I'm using HD Tune. Here's the pic from Jan 2013, followed by a pic I took today:

change the sata cable and it should stop if not then change the sata port. If ti continues to increase replace the drive.

I changed the cable back in january when I saw the error the first time. So it's still increased since then. I guess that means the drive itself is bad?

Dont use HDtune for checking the drive health. All it does is give you the numbers that the drive puts out. For future reference, use Hard Disk Sentinel.

And do what Sean Webster said: swap the cable for another one, if that doesnt work, try a new port, if that doesnt work pull what you can and get a new drive.

The other thing i would suggest is to find a way to keep the read/write arm floating and the disk spinning, as the disk constantly stopping and starting is going to put an increased amount of wear and tear on the components vs nonstop spinning and floating (may be wrong here). 19490 converted from hex to decimal gets you a whopping 103,568 load/unload cycles over the course of the last 10 months, which comes out to approximately 345 per day. Definitely not healthy for the drive.

^ I have all the drives set to turn off after 20 minutes of inactivity. I thought that would help preserve them more than if they were constantly spinning. Should I just disable that altogether?

Yep. Not only does it reduce strain on the hardware, you also dont have to wait for the disk to spin back up before accesses can be done.
