How do I check for bad sectors when all sector read/writes return error?

I wish I knew...

The code I was running is test code for communicating with the MAS chip
over the I2C bus. It is not trying to do anything with IDE.

That said, my code also didn't setup PA2 as CS6 explicitly. I assumed the
Firmware did this for me. If not, the IDE may have been flooded by bus
traffic.
