This is in an HP PC? This error (like most SMART errors) is indicative that your disk is on its way out. Your best bet is to buy a new disk quickly, and get important information off this one! SMART errors are usually fairly accurate, though occasionally disks go on for years.
(SMART = System Monitoring And Reporting Technology)

If you are getting errors from the hard drive diagnosis, the solution is--replace the hard drive. Don't mess with it. You can install the defective hard drive as a second drive and possibly lift data from it. Keep messing with it and you may lose more data.

GOT ERROR CODE RW529-2W what does that mean


Normally error codes are manufacturer specific...and about the only references you will find to them is from software designed by third party venders and may or may not be supportive of your hardware. In most cases as with yours the data represents what tests were being done and that there was an error during that test but not what the actuall error was. for instance: CD523-7W..... the CD523-7 means that it was a funnel seek test on a CD/rom drive....the w is what/where the error was and is software specific...meaning that the "W" code is determined by the software that performed the test and may not actually be the specific error for your hardware.... CD523-9W. refers to a random seek error RW529-1W. refers to an ATAPI rewritable drive All in all the code that you have supplied refers to a failed head allignment (funnel test) and a failed read and write test(seek) on an ATAPI drive. simply said that if the heads are out of allignment then the optics certainly can't read or write correctly either. Now understand that a true test cannot be made while windows is running and so the tests should have been performed in a DOS environment...also there must be a readable CD inserted....so may not be accurate at all. If you were using PC-doctor in DOS mode then holding down the space bar may give up a tad bit more information. Hope that helps you!
