hdparm and smartmontools are your friends maybe.
I would trying the following:
The disk is ok? S.M.A.R.T long selftest/status is ok?
Automatic Acoustic Management feature set?
AAM (Actually I really dont know if this would/could help)
Power Management feature set?
play with Power Management Settings of the harddrive.
Kind Regards, Markus Falb
