Bad sectors can be managed by running chkdsk /r

The /r switch instructs chkdsk to run a surface scan and mark the bad sectors so they're not used. That's normal, if disappointing...used to be very, very common to have up to about 1% of bad sectors over time. We don't see that much anymore, but it still happens and unless the population grows, may not be a serious issue.

The cable problem could be seating, could be the cable. Radio Shack sells a can of "Tuner Cleaner" that's specifically for all electronic connections. Good to have on hand.

bad sectors arent too much to worry about, still would back the drive up and RMA.
you can get advanced replacement for 20$ , they send you the drive and packaging to send your old one back. really handy to do

i have seen bad sectors be because of magnetic build up in a case. weird but its true....

the crc errors arent good either, could be controller/cable/or a controller hickup since you are overclocked. would check the crc errors and see if you get more.

well about the dma crc error....i've replaced the cable, switch the port,swap the power.....still the same.....

is it due to overclocking ...or hard drive problem ?

the chkdsk /r is it for all my drives ?

chkdsk /r is for one drive at a time.

An overclock can do this, yes - but not usually a bad sector.

Usually if PCI is not untied, you can get this kind of thing.

Also, overclocked RAM can result in anomalous disc processing, but that doesn't usually result in a bad sector, just crashed directories and overwritten files, damaged partition tables occasionally.

Another thing you can try, which have resurrected many drives for me, is to remove the drive's controller board, clean the contacts between it and the drive housing, and re-seat the controller board. This isn't usually a cure for bad sectors...that's usually a treatment for other various odd behaviors, hanging, strange write errors that come and go...but it doesn't hurt (but only if the drive is NOT under warranty).

On the CRC error, you can try a test with the port set at Sata 1 instead of Sata 2 (sometimes you change the drive to do that).

If that helped, it is suggestive of a bad cable, but could be gunk on the connectors - and it could be an overclock.
