WD80EFAX-68LHPN0 drive permanently shows ATA Error

Keywords: ata Cc:


This disk suddenly got a permanent error entry:
199 UDMA_CRC_Error_Count 0x000a 200 200 000 Old_age Always - 1

SMART Error Log Version: 1
ATA Error Count: 1
Error 1 occurred at disk power-on lifetime: 1051 hours (43 days + 19 hours)

When the command that caused the error occurred, the device was active or idle.
After command completion occurred, registers were:
-- -- -- -- -- -- --
84 41 00 00 00 00 00 Error: ICRC, ABRT at LBA = 0x00000000 = 0

Commands leading to the command that caused the error were:
CR FR SC SN CL CH DH DC Powered_Up_Time Command/Feature_Name
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- ---------------- --------------------
60 00 00 d0 b6 27 40 80 00:17:24.781 READ FPDMA QUEUED

It looks like a single data transmission (CRC) error bewtween disk and SATA controller.

Is it correct to assume that this does not really influence the probability of future errors?

Unfortunately running smartctl -ad sat /dev/sdb returns error status 0x4000 wich I could not find in the documentation. Could you please give a hint to documentation of high valued exist status.
Many thanks!

Please provide the output of smartctl -d sat -a -x /dev/sdb as an attachment(!) to this ticket. Add -q noserial if desired. Do not discard the very first output line as it contains important information about smartctl version and platform.

Such a single CRC error is usually harmless. But this error log may be incomplete because it is the legacy error log (-l error) which only supports 28-bit LBA. Also check the extended error log (-l xerror, included in -x but not in -a) instead.

Smartctl exits with 0x40 if the legacy error log is non-empty. This is usually returned as 0x4000 by POSIX functions like pclose() and waitpid() and should be converted back with WEXITSTATUS().

Drive reports single CRC error in both error logs. Smartctl behaves as expected.
