It’s very important to read some hdd error codes when you are using some Seagate hdd repair tools like pc3k or hd doctors within their cmd mode.  If an error is detected, a drive outputs to terminal its code and brief additional information.  E.g.:    “Code – FE  Track 19A1.3.06E  Sns E00  Rty F7FF.FF.80FF  Rtf 1C00” – “FE” error.
