Hard Drive turns on and off

When I play games, sometimes my Hard Drive will turn off and then 3 seconds later turn back on again, Windows does not crash and everything still runs fine there after but sometimes it can do this twice in succession.
My Hard Drive is a Western Digital WD2500JS 250GB and it is fairly new, I only got it new about 6 months ago.
These are the things I have done with the HDD so far:
1. Made sure my power supply is producing enough juice (it is)
2. Checked all of the cables (they are all tightly fitted)
3. Took a few temperture scans, the tempertue is normal and should not be enough to overheat the hard drive, plus there is a small fan cooling the hard drive too.
4. Downloaded the WD Diagnostics tool and did an extended scan (it said everything is fine)
