Are you sure that it really is the drive that is the problem? Maybe
that quirk is just masquerading some other problem with your
system. Did you try the drive in some other machine?

I'm asking because I have been running a "ST3160023AS" for a long time
without any problems at all. Yes, I know it's not identical, but
still... ;-)

Best regards,
