make sure the power connector is making good contact with the drive first, i have had bad power plugs before and had similar issues, shouldn't take long to try and see if it helps.

maybe try a different power plug also, i have also taken small needle nose plyers
and slightly closed the little metal things in the power connector to make a better fit.
