HD Tune health warning,should i be worried?

Can someone pls tell me if this is something to be concerned about? I checked it just now,i had HD tune 2. something before and just got this newer version from my brother,this is the new shot im worried about:


And this is the old one taken yesterday with the previous version:


Im scanning for bad sectors,just passed 900GB and still fine like yesterday. When i select warning,it says it could be due to faulty wire which would make sense as im using a year old wire from my DVD rom.

Firstly, we do not assist people with Piracy on sevenforums.com, however the error is from a "cyclic redundancy check" which is where data written to the drive is not formed the way it should be (corrupt or incomplete) this type of error could be detected when scanning a partially downloaded file as if it were a complete file.

HD tune 2.55 is free to use mate: HD Tune website
and i have BOUGHT the 4.60 version a while back myself,to my best knowledge,it was the latest version.Tis not piracy
And im not big on this technical stuff but what your saying is that basically its not a problem with the Hard drive?

You have a bad sata cable, replace it and see if CRC count stops increasing.

His question had nothing whatsoever to do with asking about piracy or anything to do with it, so what business do you have commenting on what's in the background in the pictures completely unrelated to the question at hand?

Test the HD with Seagate Seatools extended CD scan to get a firm diagnosis, followed by Disk Check on all partitions.

In addition to running diagnostics on your HDD you you want to see what CrystalDiskInfo has to say. I've been using it for some time now. Error count warnings generally occur when you exceed some arbitrary threshold. CrystalDiskInfo lets you set 3 of the count thresholds to say a little more than they are now. If the count increases you will get a warning, if not then you are probably ok.

umm ok,well first of all thats none of your business mate but since im such a nice guy i will explain,I collect TV shows,every show worth watching and if i HAVE watched it on CABLE (WHICH i pay for myself too monthly just for these shows) I download it later and store,i reckon paying for it once was more then enough but if its not,do take necessary actions. Plus i know of no sites where i should pay to download them. I wasnt asking for your assistance in pirating anything so pls,stick to the topic,i will appreciate it greatly.
