I had the same issue with Maxtor SATA disks and 3ware 9550SX RAID card but
finally our vendor contacted Maxtor and 3ware and installed a new firmware
for the drives and since than they are working OK.

> After *finally* convincing our vendor it was Maxtor (we've had
> problems w/ them before this as well) they shipped us a batch of

> sleeping drives, so far set and forget.
> This, as a disclaimer, was just for our particular application.  I
> will say however, that I will never buy Maxtor again.
