- Run "smartctl -i /dev/sdb | grep -i model"
- Then "dmesg | grep -i ata2"
- To finally compare by hdd model :-)
As per the error itself, you can use the manufacturer hard disk
diagnostic tools which uses to run from a LiveCD and will provide
accurate results about your hdd health and status.
OTOH, I've also seen that kind of error coming from bad sata cable or bad
sit connection to motherboard/disk. You may also check this.
