If the drive is early in its failure cycle built-in error correction might be coming to the rescue, especially since the yellow seems to imply "caution" not "dead." The prudent thing is to take action now before it is dead.

As noted in other posts, don't toss the optical discs until you are satisfied they are of no use to you. Consider that you would not toss the last remaining video tape of an important one-time event because of a few drop outs or glitches in playback. Some files, e.g., programs, may not operate if their files contain errors, but other data like video and audio files may play OK except for a glitch at the bad data point. Play the discs before you toss to see if they perform acceptably to you.

Another program that can read/analyze HDD, SMART data, and possibly recover data is Gibson's SpinRite
for more details on it (but it is freeware.)
