You could try and disable ERC if you can, see if that helps.

Already sent back, dropped it off this morning to the shipping carrier the company chose to give me a label for. They're sending me a Seagate that's roughly the same price. Though I might just leave it as it is with the 640gb as the primary and the two 2tb drives as just data storage drives.
