As the title states, I purchased today a brand new model WDC WD10JPLX-00MBPT0 WD Black 2’5 inch 32MB cache HDD 1TB. I booted into Hiren’s BootCD. I ran Victoria HDD/SSD v4.72b software on it as soon as I incased it in an external enclosure and looked at its S.M.A.R.T read out. I am confused to see that the Spin-Up time raw value read out is 98784247810 VAL 100 Wrst 100 Tresh 33. I do not really understand how to comprehend the S.M.A.R.T readout, but I do know that raw 98784247810 is not normal! I then ran a full write test from Victoria and it was fine, no problems. I refreshed the S.M.A.R.T reading and again the same Spin-Up time showed. I looked at the S.M.A.R.T read out using GSmartControl and I get Raw value 2 Norm-ed value 100 Worst 100 Threshold 33. I then used Western Digital Data LifeGuard Diagnostics - DLGDIAG for Windows and it does not have a raw section. I was only able to get the following readout Value 100 Threshold 33 Worst 100. These are the only readouts LifeGuard has. I do not know what to do. I have another Western Digital that I purchased 1 week ago which is a Black 500GB model WDC WD5000LPLX-00ZNTT0 and its S.M.A.R.T Spin-Up time raw value using Victoria it is 1500 VAL 150 Wrst 149 Tresh 21, in GSmartControl it is raw value 1500 Norm-ed value 150 Worst 149 Threshold 21 and in Western Digital Data LifeGuard it is Value 150 Threshold 21 Worst 149. I presume the Black 500GB has a good Spin-Up raw value and the other values are good. I did run the LifeGuard’s quick test and it gave me a displayed message that it passed. Any understanding on what is going on with the Black 1TB?
I am editing my initial post to further add another tool to read the S.M.A.R.T. I used CrystalDiskInfo 8.0.0 and the read out for the 1TB raw value is 001700000002. For the 500GB raw value is 0000000005DC. I have no idea what they mean for CrystalDiskInfo but it might be of further use for whomever can help.
