I used to have the same problem with a Seagate SATA drive. When I
installed Windows on the same drive, it would work fine. I even got the
drive replaced by Seagate, but it did not solve the problem. After three
drives, I found a page on the net which said that the sata driver in
fbsd had some problems with smartmon. I disabled it in the bios and
haven't had any problem since for the past 5 months.
Haven't tried this smartmontools though
