hmm, or something totally odd...

what happens if you do: (after you made a backup!)
"dd if=/dev/sdX(where X is your affected hdd?) of=/dev/null bs=1"
The important bit is the small bs (blocksize) number.
You can throw in a O_DIRECT flag to disable the caches, or
if you have some "empty" partition space, you can "dd" into
it with a small blocksize too)

my seagate & even a samsung hd103uj doesn't like that and will spew
out the same sort problems you have just posted... (but they work fine,
if I don't do nasty dd things!)

and unfortunatly my md(raid1) seems to do lots of "small" reads & writes
when it starts to check/resync the whole 1TB array :-/.
