Have a look in power manager and check if Automatic optical drive power off is disabled. If it's enabled power manager switch off the ultrabay.
Just a thought...

With an SSD in the Bay Adapter running Windows 7 on it, I'm having this problem, too. Since I hadn't used sleep/resume for a while, I didn't know when it started to happen. It didn't happen before and it could be due to a driver update, which I don't have time to look into yet.

I have the same issue with my Thinkpad W520 and HITACHI HTS725050A9A364. I'm using the Intel Rapid Storage drivers.
It happens every time I resume from sleep. I also have an external HDD that I use for backup. It also exhibits the problem when I attempt to safely disconnect the drive. Could this mean the probelm is associated with the Intel drivers?
Has anyone found a solution to this?

You have to purchase an ultra bay adapter from a third party. The adapter that Lenovo sells doesn't fit the W510/W520 and leaves room for the drive to move around. The drive moves and temporarily disconnects and that is why you are getting the error message. Since I have switched to a third party drive bay I have never had this problem.
Lenovo should hang its head in shame - this is a known problem for more than a year and yet we still don't have a properly engineered ultrabay adapter for the laptops. It is a real shame!

While you may be right about the third-party versus Lenovo provided adapter, the problem isn't being caused by physical movement. I hav emy lenovo sitting flat on a desk. If I go into and out of suspend, easy eject tries to disconnect the device. If you go back in and out of suspend, it will detect the device again and the drive reappears. This happens every suspend / hibernation event. Very annoying.
I have a ticket in with Lenovo to get this fixed, but am not hopeful.
In the meantime, if a third-party drive bay fixed the issue for you, can you share the link to it please?
