Windows 7: Hdd smart error C8H

Hdd smart error C8H

Anyone know if this hdd smart error C8H is a serious one? i can find only litle details on this.

I'd like to know this as i bought an old IDE laptop drive for a pentium 4 era laptop that needed a slight upgrade, then one day i discovered this error while just playing around with the laptop, there's 19 errors of this so far and i don't even know what it does, the hd however works just fine except for that error, no surface problems or anything.

Serious or not, I wouldn't trust that drive any more. IMHO any SMART error is a sign of a impending drive failure.
