On completion of the test, HUTIL recommends doing "ERASE DISK" which is basically a low-level format, and then running the test again. I know Samsung's tools allow a zero-fill format, but does that also do things such as the alignment tracks? Has anybody ever returned a drive showing a "Check M.C." error, and received a drive without that error in return?

From the symptoms and the tests I've done, I consider it is likely that: a) the heads crashed, thus mangling the surface b) a power spike caused misalignment overwriting some of S.M.A.R.T. Usually when a drive is dying you will get a S.M.A.R.T error message, although its not uncommon for a drive to die without warning as well.
