    Check the RAM, run memtest overnight and see what it says.

    Also it could be a bad controller/motherboard.

    that means you either have a bad hard drive or a bad hard drive controller. However RAM could still be the problem.

    That just means you ran chkdsk on a mounted volume, you need to run it with /F to actually fix things and it'll need to dismount the volume in order to do so. If it's the system volume this will require a reboot.

    The most likely culprit of CRC errors is cabling, interference or environment like heat. Do you have other cables to try?

    I believe he said in the OP he had tried multiple ports and cables, which is why i think its mobo or ram related.

    Could be, but that chkdsk output isn't an indication of anything more than having run chkdsk on a mounted volume.

    wow English failed me. I was trying to say this is the second hard drive he was having the same issue with on the same system, not that it was the second physical drive in the system.

    Wow, talk about communication issues. =) If that's the case, then yea it's probably the motherboard that's the root cause. A BIOS/firmware update or even just drivers might be able to work around the problem though.
