Default Re: Error -9073 drive is too slow using a fast enough drive

I hate to think this could be true, but I have had new drives fail(so back it up NOW). Seriously, had a 10 day old WD firewire drive go bad(good thing I had the one session on it already backed up). The replacement started acting funky after only a few days. Then a friend's rig(only 3 months ago) had 3 drives(same batch, bought at the same time) cause rotten performance(on a killer 6-core i7 rig). As soon as he moved a session off any of those drives and onto a spare I lent him, it all performed great(all 3 drives were replaced under warranty). The moral here is, just because a drive is new or mostly empty, doesn't mean the drive is good
