    Windows XP service pack was suppose to fix that problem, so update you windows if that does not help if you could try switching the SLAVE and PRIMARY drives around (probally cant do this without a good format) or check for loose wires and power cables.

    i've had this problem. Try to set your drives to master and slave if you use cable select
