Is that an internal or an external disk. And if it is external, is it USB powered or does it have it's own power. I am asking because one possibility is that the power got cut off.

I am experiencing the same thing myself. Here is a definitive thread on the issue for large hard drives using the windows AHCI driver. I will try the hotfix probably tonight.

Sorry the hot-fix didn't apply to your case, I think. It still sounds like a similar issue though - the hard drive is not spinning up out of hibernation quickly enough so the system is dropping it. I would suggest you look at the spin-up time reported by SMART, but since it is IDE, that won;t work.

Have you looked in the system log for ATAPI or other associated errors?
