Run the appropriate hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic utility (extended/long test) on that drive...after first moving any files wanted...to the safety of another drive.

there is another problem here, dwd-rw drive isn't working properly, does not read disks sometimes. i wanted just to analyse the situation, but it will take long to fix it by myself. hdd has warranty, so i will give it to where i buyed it.
