Why do WD hard drives drop from RAID sets intermittently?

WD1600YS, WD2500YS, WD4000YS, and WD5000YS hard drives are intermittently being dropped from a RAID set in certain applications and use environments without reporting any errors.

To solve this problem, update the firmware of the hard drives.
