    Did you know there is a raid list?

    You have created a raid 0+1, raid10 is a different thing. Given your
    setup, raid10 is probably what you *should* have created.

    Hardware error, almost certainly. If you're using a hub, I suspect that
    first, then cables and heat problems, then the controller, in rough
    order of likelyhood.

    Do you ever get errors in partitions which are not part of the raid0+1
    setup, like md1? If not, look at your partition tables to see if you
    have any strange values there.

    Are all drives at the same firmware level?
