Disk is OK, one failing attribute is failing

why this message shows up and my CD drive is working properly…

You might check with the following in terminal:

sudo apt-get install smartmontools

sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda

The short of it is, the SMART monitor is reading nobad sectors, but is suggesting that your HDD is failing.


Also check using Disks:


Personally, I’ve found “Disks” - Gnome Disks - to be lacking info’ in certain cases. I get much better information using “GSmartControl”.
