I have been having some problems recently with my 2nd harddrive. today it stopped responding. I use it for storage (music, pictures, and other files).
I was listening to some music today on the comp and the music decided to stop. i was trying figure out why and my drive seemed to "disappear". it wasnt listed in my computer anymore... so i restarted. then it wouldnt start up. once it froze on the windows load screen, once it froze before windows loading, once it froze where you choose to boot in safe mode or regular etc.
so i unplugged the second drive, restarted, and it worked fine. so i turned off, plugged the drive back in and turned it back on. now it works fine. i dont understand.
I checked the event viewer and there is a lot of events. These events are repeated a bunch of times. here are some:
Event ID: 51
"An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk1\D during a paging operation."
Event ID: 9
The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort3, did not respond within the timeout period.
Event ID: 1
The System Restore filter encountered the unexpected error '0xC0000185' while processing the file '~WRL0005.tmp' on the volume 'HarddiskVolume4'. It has stopped monitoring the volume.
