S.M.A.R.T. = Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology. It's run a check & determined the HDD is bad. Disabling S.M.A.R.T. isn't going to help. If the drive is bad, it's bad. You can try running the HDD manufacturer's software & see what it tells you. If the drive is still under warranty, you *may* be able to return it.

if it refuse to format, it is in very bad condition, soon it will leave this world.
