Hi. I had the same problem. Also that my disk just stopped doing data
transfers after increasingly shorter periods.
I installed smartmontools to make sure it was the disk, I can advise you
to do the same :) If the disk says it's broken, it's broken. The disks
in the TiBooks have pretty good SMART support.
