Front disc brake squealing bad sign ? Should pad replacement have helped ?

    My front disc brake has been squealing for the past 3,000 miles.

    I had the front pads redone 1,000 miles ago and they still squealed afterwards.

    Does this mean that my disc needs replacing or treatment ?

    Should the pad replacement have helped the squealing ?

    Is this something that left unchecked could cause other problems ?

    It could be the pad compound. I had some Galfer Green pads that squealed
    like crazy until they were really hot. The stock pads and the EBC HH are
    completely silent.
