Maybe off-topic here, but these IBM hard drives seem to be defective, and
have effective MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) that low, that perhaps
this drive won't be the last to crash in short time.

If I am not wrong, there are several places that document these
problems, as well as similar ones with some Fujitsu's hard drives. Just
in case, search the Internet and replace your disk before they crash.

Hope my off-topic helps.
