hard drive unknown return code 15

  john the scone 22:10 27 Jul 2008

ran a utility to test hard dive status and the final report said hard drive did not fail test but returned an unknown return code number 15. having trouble finding out what exactly this is, can anyone shed any more light or should i just be happy it passed.
win xp sp3, fix-it utilities , system 6 1/2 years old, same 40 gb hard drive, though everything backed up onto external drive now. thanks

The program simply just does not recognize the make of drive. Nothing to worry about

With a drive that old, I'd suggest you run a SMART utility to monitor it continuously - at least you would get plenty of warning if it started to show signs of wearing out.
