You're correct! I tried with hdparm before posting he answer, but it didn't seem to work. However, it was a problem with hdparm, and now when it's running as it should, everything works fine.

It seems my actual problem was that the head was unloaded and then loaded again, just in case someone else is seeking a solution to the same problem. I so far haven't been able to avoid this.

Turning off all power saving options (like lowered voltages for idle units) in BIOS might help?
