Samsung SATA ECC Corrected Count

Archived from groups: comp.sys.ibm.pc.hardware.storage (More info?)

I recently installed a 160GB SATA Samsung SP1614C hard drive. I have
noticed the SMART attribute [C3] ECC Corrected Count has increased to a
large number (13,000,000+) after only a couple days of use and
continues to increase quickly. Could this indicate a problem with the
drive? What is it actually counting? The drive appears to be working
ok. Here is the rest of the SMART data:

    I have seen the same in the same drive model deliverd to me today,
    about 5 minutes after I switched it on the first time. I think
    this attribute may be misinterpreted by the SMART software (smartctl
    in my case) or have some offset added to it.

    Since my drive shows a number close to the one you see, I think
    this is not an indication of a problem with the drive.

    I also have a SP1614N (tha PATA variant, in use for about a year
    now) with a value of 159769860 in this attribute, but zero
    reallocated sectors, i.e. no surface problems.

    Does anybody else here know something about this?
