Perhaps you or one of the other gurus could explain the following
observations, which I am sure that I and many other readers would find
very enlightening:

I have an IBM-DTLA-307045 drive connected to a PDC20265 controller on
an ia32 machine running 2.4.16. After reading this discussion and
hearing about the problems that others have had with the IBM 75GXP
series, I thought that I should test out my drive to see if it is OK.
So I ran 'dd if=/dev/hde of=/dev/null bs=128k'. Every thing went
fine, except for about five seconds in the middle, when the disk made
a lot of grinding sounds and the system was unresponsive. That
generated the log messages messages appended below.

However, running the dd command again (after a reboot) produced no
errors. So the drive remapped some bad sectors the first time
through? The common wisdom here is that once you get to the point
where the drive reports a bad sector, you are in trouble. If so, why
did the second dd command work OK? I have had no other problems with
this drive.

Thanks, Wayne
