check SMART status
Authored by: Scripter12 on Nov 22, '05 11:58:29AM

One more data point when investigating a questionable HD is to check the SMART status. SMARTReporter (version tracker) might be able to do this. I've never used it to read the status of an iPod HD. Disk Utility might do it. I recently noticed that when I launched Disk Utility to check the permissions on an old iMac it automatically told me that the SMART status was bad and the the disk could be expected to fail soon.

You can't check SMART status over USB or firewire though
