When it comes to head testing, the test within the WD utility is unreliable, as you now see. ACE actually added a head test within DE when you click the drop-down of the headmap icon on the right of a task. This test is more like DeepSpar's test where each head reads an evenly distributed number of sectors from beginning to the end of the drive. This way, if it is media damage, the head will read some sectors, where if the head doesn't read any sectors, it seems reasonable that it is the head that has failed.
