If it's not dead already, it can be when you read this or in 2-3 months. I 
usually change the cable on the first read error I see popping up, just to 
rule out the cable. If the errors persist, it's time to order and stop adding 
new stuff to the disk.
Since it's a church disk, you might have better luck with your prayers then 
most people.
