Trouble with Current_Pending_Sector

infernux
Helle smartmontools-support, hopefully someone here can help me...

For some days now, DeviceKit-disks on my Fedora system complains about my "broken" harddrive. The problem seems to be "Current_Pending_Sector" being 1 (there's also Airflow_Temperature_Cel which failed once in the past but I was told that this does not trigger the warning message).

I have run a number of self-tests, using smartctl -t long and a special test-CD provided by Seagate. They all "Completed without error". From what I know, a "Current_Pending_Sector" is not that bad as it can normally be remapped by a write. Problem is, I don't know the address of the pending sector. I have even run the non-destructive read/write-test from badblocks on every partition but this did not help either.

Can anyone help? I think I still don't get the whole problem...

Thanks in advance,

--Michael
