Default Ubuntu Self-test Fails

I've check this HDD with Windows and it showed no error. I formatted it and installed a fresh Windows 7 Pro copy. Everything looks like working fine.

However, Ubuntu running from my USB stick doesn't mount it and shows "SEL-TEST FAILED". Yet in the detailed 'SMART Date & Self-Tests', it shows all attributes as 'OK'!

What do you understand from this?
