First, ez is ancient and has been replaced twice. I'd recommend upgrading
to the PARIDE suite. You'll get _much_ better performance.

As far as your specific problem goes, you need to give us some more
information to go by: were any messages logged in your kernel logs ?

There are several possibilities: the drive has gone bad, the media has
gone bad, you've scrambled the disk somehow, or you've changed your
configuration in some way. I've listed them in ascending order of
probability, but without some data it's hard to say ...
