The serial ata disks are usually recognized as hde , hdf, hdg or hdh.

Try to check the disk with the tool created by the manufacturer. It
usually detects physical errors with the disk. Also , use smartctl -t
long /dev/hdg  , wait until the time it tells you and then smartctl -a
/dev/hdg . Read carefully the results. If you get any value too close to
the threshold , then send the disk to be replaced.
