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.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH
