After a reread when it finally stuck that this started with an upgrade to 8,
I like Mathew's suggestion to use a 7.x LiveCD (and possibly a -Stable
snapshot as well) to see if it is a 7.x vs 8.x problem. Even so, there still
might be a possibility that firmware in the drive tickled something in 8.x
that it didn't hit under 7.x.
