    Have ya been to WD's website and downloaded their diagnostic software to check the drive?
    That error indicates either driver problems, system file problems, disk corruption problems (such as a damaged pagefile), or faulty memory hardware.

    I suggest tryin' Memtest86 next to be sure that it isn't a memory prob.

    BTW how did ya partition and format the drive? :?:

    Sounds like a memory problem. Did you do what Wiggo said?
    Lots of people just ignore memory problems and look elsewhere.
