Yours definitely have the proprietary HDD sensor if it goes crazy like this
 
There are a few fixes that do not involve using compatible or flashed drives to work
 
Look for SMART control software that is free and install that, and have it run at startup or if it gives you the option to run at startup, use it and see if that works
 
I have also heard the sensor is part of the power cable, matching the part number for the right cable, this has been reported to work with friends who tried it
 
These are general tips, but the year the mac is made will also play a major role in their effectiveness
 
As per age of each mac, the 2009 ones are the easiest to tame ones, SMART control software works on them, and the power cord swap may work too and is more likely, and matching drive brands could work as well, and drive brand matching too
 
2010 ones are as simple as matching the brand on the drive and possibly changing the power cord for the HDD to matchsomething I am not entirley sure about, if you use a different brandI figure it out, I'll update this

2011 is probably hopeless but the power cord swap and SMART software, these are the worst ones due the HDD power connector on the drive, if this fails to fix it, game over
 
As to places where to get compatible drives, OWC sells some, I have been told they are compatible in some way, but cannot verify this as I own a MacBook Pro, but they do sell Apple ROM ones too and have been told these work, just be sure to get a seagate or WD and match the brand to be safe

OWC has a upgrade program for these Macs, but this is only for the 2010/2011 ones, these are 21.5 and 27''
