If you have a multimeter, check the power supply leads to see if they are giving the right, steady voltages. If not, you power supply might be going bad.

Frankdogg, maybe try it out on another computer first, and see what happens... That way, we can eliminate your own PSU issues.
Unfortunately, weird stuff like that does happen to some drives, when the drives' own internal units go a bit nuts :(.

I heard a strange story about PC speakers giving out a similar frequency to the eject operation on someones driver and having the same problem.
