TSSTcorp TS-L632D on acer (maybe on some other laptops)

After installing linux on my acer aspire 7110 series (7112WSMI) I always have hand-up after some amount of a time (20 ot 10 minutes or even 5 minutes).
dmesg shows such thing:
Feb 16 14:28:14 pfx-car kernel: [17186841.644000] Additional sense: Scsi parity error

The system just stops for 30 seconds. I thought it was HDD driver bug, but I've found it's a bug in the TS-L632D firmware. Acer hasn't updates for it (only AC1), but other manufactures have. See this page (to find firmware).
Reflashing from AC0 to AC1 didn't help me. But when the drive isn't empty I haven't this error - it's enough for me.
Waiting for comments :)

Not sure this is related to my article: TS-L632D is a CR/DVD, not blu-ray. I never even saw blu-ray and you gave to less information, so I can't say anything.
