Sounds like you are using lousy hard-disks and need to buy something better.
Put the drives in another machine, and find out if there's anything _really_
wrong with them. A place I used to work at had _lots_ of troubles with SCSI
drives giving that sort of error, and spent a lot of money on new drives,
but it turned out to be the Adaptec controllers that were the problem.

Did you read the documentation AND the FAQ?
If not, I'll probably still answer your question, but my patience will
be limited, and you take the risk of sarcasm and ridicule.
