Well, its clearly getting I/O errors trying to access the drive.  That
could point to several possibilities:

* Bad SATA port.  Try connecting the cable to a different SATA port on the

* Bad drive.  But you already changed the drive out, so maybe not a bad

* Bad power supply.  The power supply could be going wonky and causing the
drive to reset.

* Bad SATA cable.  Sometimes old SATA cables can't handle the higher
bandwidths of newer motherboards and drives.  I have piles of cables at
home and over the last 10 years I have had to throw half of them away
because they could only handle SATA I or SATA II speeds.
