The self test log (after a long self test) should show the LBA.

This reads the disk, you have if= and of= switched. Make sure you didn't turn
/dev/zero into a regular file :-) I did this once with /dev/null, it makes
for mucho confusion...
Also, you should not specify a count, just let it write until it errors
out at the end of the device.

I have a disk with a pending sector that is beyond the end of the disk.
So the self tests test it but the disk wont allow the OS to write it.
I couldn't read your attachments so not sure if this is biting you.
