The SMART temp readings often can't be trusted, about half of the hd's I've seen claim to have the current temperature of 253 C :P
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I got 37degC, which seems reasonable.

On the old desktop, despite the scsi hd's being SMART enabled, they didn't want to share the temperature with me.

..also compiled smartmontools, working on the smartmontools gui  :)

BTW, you can get all of the available SMART info for your hd and, having chosen the temperature output, you can modify the hddtemp.db like this:
Code: [Select]
$ sudo hddtemp -D /dev/hda

================= hddtemp 0.3-beta15 ==================
Model: SAMSUNG HS122JC

field(1)         = 0    (0x00)
field(3)         = 195  (0xc3)
field(4)         = 36   (0x24)
field(5)         = 0    (0x00)
field(9)         = 217  (0xd9)
field(12)        = 204  (0xcc)
field(191)       = 147  (0x93)
field(192)       = 52   (0x34)
field(194)       = 37   (0x25)
field(196)       = 100  (0x64)
field(197)       = 169  (0xa9)
field(198)       = 106  (0x6a)
field(199)       = 59   (0x3b)
field(200)       = 26   (0x1a)

If one of the field value seems to match the temperature, be sure to read
the hddtemp man page before sending a report (section REPORT). Thanks.

Add following to hddtemp.db

"SAMSUNG HS122JC" 194  C "Samsung D430"

$ sudo hddtemp /dev/hda   
/dev/hda: SAMSUNG HS122JC: 37
