I just bought a brand new 1TB RE4 drive WD1003FBYX and when I tried to run diagnostic SW DLGDIAG ver 5.20 under DOS, running qeuick or extended test it didn't started but immediatelly displayed this error message:
Error 0229: Missing Test Tracks
I also ran another SW like HDTune and it reported SMART status OK. What does this error mean? Is there available some firmware update to fix it? It seems to me it's not a HW failure.

Error is not listed sorry.
Were you able to use the drive? Copy a file and paste to the drive?

I hoped that people from WD know their tools they created and it's diagnostic codes
I don't understand the question...
I bought the drive in regular shop as end user in Czech Republic and I'm using it in my workstatioon PC.
The error code was returned from DlgDiag 5.20 that I downloaded from WD site and run it under DOS.

I got a brand new WD1003FBYX drive as a temporal replacement from local store and it also suffers with error Error 0229: Missing Test Tracks. What does this mean? The serial number is not +1 but ~ + 67000, this is quite wide range of drives...

Yes, it works well, yet... SMART status OK too.
But I'm confused that 2 same drives (with same FW) behaves different way. And nobody can give me explanation what's wrong.
