    theres a possibility that there might be a bad sector or something.. better backup that disk before its too late... many drives show some sign that say ''I... I... I.. ammm ammmmm dyyyyiiiiinnnnng'' it happened twice with my 160gb samsung pata drive.. i literally hate samsung for just that.. sold off my pata and now on i only buy sata hdd way better than pata

    About those drives .
    One reason i can think of is that there might be many files as soon as you open the drive.
    So it takes time to open it up.
