    Today I decided to upgrade my computer’s hard drive, I actually have an iBook G3 Solid White at 800 MHz. It was 20 GB which I upgraded to 40 GB (wrong major, but I ran out of space when I upgraded). After a very tedious process of opening a job and mounting a disk, I installed OS Tiger and opened Disk Utility. When I put the drive up for sale, it gave me some message “This drive reported a fatal hardware error to Disk Utility”, and the S.M.A.R.T. The status is “Error”. The drive is a new MK4025GAS laptop that I removed from an old dead Powerbook G4 (spilled coffee). Also, the drive worked fine in a USB case on my PC and never reported any errors. The disk works well for us, he installed Tiger perfectly and just recently to check it, he copied information about 10 GB of files to it and so deleted them and did it later and it still works fine. It doesn’t make any weird noises, and the battery lasts just as fast, if not faster than before. Can using it give a false warning? It seems to be holding up well and although I could fill old drive, I could use the extra space on a larger one. Any idea if the reader already has a problem or not?

I know this means the system can’t access the OS so I assumed my hard drive was deadshaft magically overnight. So I turned off my electronics, then restarted and everything booted up fine. I went into Disk Utility and my main hard drive where OS X did this is highlighted in red, not to mention that when I click on it, Disk Utility just says “This drive gave Disk Utility a Fatal Hardware error. if the drive is not completely failed, back up your data as much as possible and then replace it with the problematic drive. </p> <p></p> </p> <a
