Windows 7: File record segment ** is unreadable

File record segment ** is unreadable

Been getting a few BSOD's since moving from IDE to ACHI mode - thought it would improve speed on the SSD. Different error messages. Decided to remove the Creative Sound Card and revert back to on-board sound. Booted up fine (so far).

Did a reboot and CHKDSK ran for Drive C with message

File record segment ** is unreadable. Never seen this before with Chkdsk - should I be concerned and look to RMA the SSD to Kingston?

Any input appreciated

Thanks for taking the time to read my post. In the meantime dropped a mail to Kingston querying the bad blocks. No hesitation on their part - they've issued a RMA for it. Those bad blocks shouldn't be there. So good to report excellent service from a manufacturer.
