Subject: about disk errors
From: José M. Fandiño (ajbr20_at_fadesa.es)
Date: 2003-06-16


Hello list,

This weekend I did a surface scan of my AJBR20 and I
got over 30MB in bad sectors. I'm wondering if other users
have these results when they scan their disks?

I use the AJB while I travel by train and bus so it's exposed
to small vibrations, perhaps this is the cause of bad sectors.

As far as I know modern disks have bad sector reallocation but
the fujitsu disk doesn't seem to use this (or the reallocation
reserved space emptyed)

also, it is intentioned the rockbox behavior regarding to read
errors (it simply skip the current song) or is it the hardware
which manages all disk errors?
