Data corruption

I have a solaris 5.6 on which oracle is installed.

we have an alert file


now whenever any datacorruption happens we get the file id and block id in the above file.

through this file and block id , we try to find out which table is corrupted and then try to recreate this table.

Now i dont know why this data corruption occurs. Is there a problem with disks or is this related with OS ?

is there a way we can predict the corruption and stop it from happenning.

Please help.
