    You have a defective drive most likely, replace it.

    If you read the newegg reviews and some forum posts elsewhere, there seem to be quite a few people who received defective drives and had to get them replaced. Sorry to say, but you may just have a bad drive.

    This sounds very much like a defective drive.
