Although A format could help it sounds more like you have some bad sectors on the harddrive.

Right click on the drive, select properties, then select the tools menu and initiate a disk check. it will give you an option screen before it proceeds, select the option to scan for a recover bad sectors/clusters. This will write off and mark the bad sectors so they will not be used again. If the problem comes back again soon then your palette media is failing and you should replace the drive.

Good luck and let us know how you make out,

Check the jumper settings on the back of the drive, if this is the primary HD, set it to master, if secondary, set it to slave, if secondary still does not recognize, switch the ide cable so that the two drives are not on the same one.
