If it's a new drive, then I think it's time to talk to tech support. If it's an old drive, let us know what is the last major software / hardware change you did before getting this error.
Btw, did you try different media?
Stone walls do not a prison make,
Nor iron bars a cage;
Minds innocent and quiet take
That for an hermitage;
If I have freedom in my love,
And in my soul am free,
Angels alone that soar above
Enjoy such liberty. - Richard Lovelace
