HI there all - have a samsung 640gb 2.5" drive that was sitting in an adapter caddy instead of the dvd drive in my dell laptop. I had lots of issues with the data. SMART on HD Tune showed hi amount of DMC CRC errors. an error scan returned many errors. I took it out, put it in a usb external caddy, reformatted it and filled it up with data now Error scan shows no errors. Does this mean that the drive is fine?
More aboutscaned errors disappeared reformat
I think Samsung drives are covert by Seagate now you should use the manufacturer software to check the drive
