The OP was referring to an external hard drive, and he/she fixed the problem by plugging that drive into a different USB port.
If you are having a similar problem but it's with an internal hard drive, that solution obviously does not apply to your situation. Please start your own thread if you want help, do not hijack someone else's thread.
