Default Disk Fragmented(-9073)

I've got a song using 60 tracks. No more than 30 play at one time. I keep getting disk too slow or fragmented(-9073). I optimized the disk, but still get the same message. I use a 9500 with a G3 450 processor, 256meg ram, 6 barracuda harddrives, Mix 24 and PT 5. When I had the same audio in a Logic session, it performed much better with no errors. Why is this? Would splitting audio to different harddrives help? Any suggestions?
Thanks

This was happening to me too. I kept reformatting and optimizing to no avail. Finally, I bought a new drive and everything's fine. I formatted with both FWB and the Atto Express tools, so I really believe the drive was just spinning too slow.

I've got 5 drives. How can I test or confirm the speed?
