    It maybe a bad sector. You should try to run a specific tool for your disk and perform some diagnostic read/write verifications.

    Check your exact hd model and download from the support page of the manufacturer the correct tool. Usually you have to use a boot floppy because it's a very low level test.

    Some months ago I successfully tried PowerMax for my Maxtor MaxPlus 9.

    just kidding.... a jumper is a small connector that acts as a conductor for two or more pins on a system component. ok???????
