  1. Check device manager and disk management in your operating system.
    Is the drive recognized?
  2. Mine has been doing the same. I sorted it by doing a software update. Not quite sure why this worked but it did. It works for a bit after this then I need to do the same when it starts flashing. Its really annoying!!!
  3. p.s i normally leave it plugged in while I do the update. Em.
  4. Check if it is using PIO mode, do a simple HDTune benchmark on it; check if the CPU usage during that benchmark is high (25% for quadcore).

    Also check SMART data.
