    hi, just wondering what kind of errors these are? are they "SMART"?

    ive ran chkdsk, says no problems, yet in disk manager it still shows errors.

    might try powermax, to see if any hardware problem, or maybe reformat/re initialise the drive..

    guess my question is.. what is xp finding errors in? filesystem? SMART?

    Reactivate the drive in disk manager if possible.

    XP will mark a drive like this if it detects any read/write errors. It should be okay as long as it isn't a constant problem.
