How has this anything to do with "SATA problems/drive handling"? And could
you please use a decent subject next time?
Regarding your problem: Have you done a smartctl selftest since then, did
you go to smartmontools.sf.net since then and read up on smartmon?
This may just be a problem with smartd not being able to handle the error
codes/number of errors from that disk. If you look at smartmontools.sf.net
and read the man you'll see that vendors are quite inconsistent in what
and how they report and a reversal of byte ordering every now and then
seems to be common. Not to mention that ther smartmon shipping with CentOS
naturally doesn't include the latest code.
