    IF you are getting disk write errors such as Error -50 from Finder, then the only resolution will be a new HDD as it is a hardware issue with the current HDD, no OS update will change a hardware issue.

    Sounds like you have a bad drive cable. Fairly common problem.

    I have not checked, but you can find the part on iFixit usually, then maybe search that part number on eBay.
