Disk faliure Proliant DL380G3

I have a problem with disk failure. I have tried 2 disks that i knew is working fine in other servers (same model of disk). I have upgraded Raid controller firmware and installed the latest support pack. Now I am starting to run out of ides. I attach a file with a printout of System management if it is to any help.
I would be grateful for any help you can give.

Hello,
strange issue, you drive looks to be identified well and clearly not working. Are you sure it works in different server?

Maybe try this - in server where work update firmware to never revision, see http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3676500&prodTypeId=329290&prodSeriesId=254961&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=54

Maybe it helps

This could be a problem with the slot that the drive is in. Check cable connections and look for dust bunnies in the slot.

Re: Disk faliure Proliant DL380G3

I have changed the disk in slot 0 to a brand new disk it rebuilt the disk and it worked fine for one day. Now the new disk and disk in slot 3 shows up as broken.
I also get a Registry hive (file): software was corrupt and it has been recovered. Some data might have been lost.
The server is running sql 2008 on server 2003 x86.
Any ideas?
