An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk2\DR4 during a paging operation

Q: An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk2\DR4 during a paging operation

I added a new 500 gig external drive to a server several months ago to use as a secondary backup device. We use a DAT drive as our primary.

I backup 3 boxes to this external drive, starting at 8:00 p.m., and allow 2 hours for each backup. I haven't gone back in the event viewer to see exactly when this started, but I get this message now at the times those backup routines start.

An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk2\DR4 during a paging operation

There is only 1 internal drive in the server and it is HardDisk1. Number 2 is this Seagate FreeAgent USB drive.

Anyone have any ideas as to what that message really means? I can manually copy data to it and erase data from it.

I have noticed however; that some of my backups aren't executing at times on those 3 other boxes for what ever reason.

I'm wondering if this drive is going into a hibernation routine or something like that....

Thoughts?

TIA

Preferred Solution: An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk2\DR4 during a paging operation

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

An error was detected on device\Device\harddisk1\D during a paging operation. This is logged frequently in my event viewer. Somtimes it is with "harddisk 2" . Is this my harddrive beginning to fail or is it an error with the external harddrive attached to my PC?

I get the following error a large number of different times in the Administrative Event log. How do I track down what is causing the problem? The problem device is an external WD My Book 1 TB IEEE 1394 SBP2. I don't understand why there should be a paging operation on this device as it is used only as an external backup for the C: drive. It has been set up with no paging file.

NEW Info: I setup WD My Book drive to have a virtual paging file and guess what - The error messages stopped! Go figure!
If you need more information just point me in the right direction and I will post it.

A:Solved: An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk1\DR1 during a paging operati

The indicated solution of creating a virtual paging file for the WD MyBook drive did not correct the problem. The problem resides in the IEEE 1394 (firewire) driver. Do the following (quoted from http://social.answers.microsoft.com...e/thread/42085c5a-4f15-4dcd-8a76-9a7860b526c2) to correct the problem stated above:

"Update to my previous post. I updated my IEEE 1394 (Firewire) controller driver from "LSI 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller" (1934ohci.sys ver 6.1.7600.16385 stock driver from Windows 7 64-bit) to "1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller (Legacy)" (ochi1394.sys and 1394 bus.sys ver 6.1.7600.16385 also stock from Windows 7 64-bit).
This change seems to have resolved this issues described in my previous post in this thread. My external Firewire disk works normally now (no longer slow during large transfers) and the Warning ID=51 has not recurred (after two days).

To accomplish this driver change, here are instructions:
Control Panel > in control panel search box (upper right) type "device manager", run Device Manager (requires Admin authorization)
View > view by type, then expand IEEE 1394 Bus Controllers (by clicking the arrow)
Double click your 1394 OHCI Host controller (exact name may vary) to bring up "properties", and write down current driver name on Driver tab in case you want to go back later.

This error has to be the most frustrating I have yet to come across. There are tons of writings on this but you never really get anywhere that is understandable to me and most of the folks that have had the same error. I know what device that is causing this because it only happens when I have either my Verbatim external drive or any one of 5 different USB sticks. I am running Windows 7 x64 with a Corsair 220 gb SSD. I have a second hard drive which is all data. I call it my D:\Drive. Everything in Event Viewer is great until one of the USB or Verbatim external drive is plugged in and then the errors start. I have run chk /dsk on all USB's and the external drive and no help. There are no BSODs or Hangs or boot problems, so you may ask why I'm concerned. Well I believe there has to be some sort of explanation for this error and I really would love to get to the bottom of it before it is an issue. It's strange that all the articles from Microsoft that concern this really say nothing. Nothing simple anyway. If anyone is familiar with this error and what it really means please let me know. I actually took this to a repair tech and he said if it's not giving me problems don't bother with it. Glad I didn't have to pay for that.

A:The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk2\DR3.

Hard disk 2 would be your third hard disk, or potentially the USB disk. There might be a problem with the USB driver, or hardware (controller).

Have you tried plugging in the USB drives into other USB ports on the machine? Do you have another computer that you could plug these devices into? That would rule out damaged USB devices that may have been damaged by a faulty port on your PC.

Right when I log onto a particular Win 7 x64 system that performs as a file server I get a System Error 11 logged:

The specific drive is a Western Digital 2 TB MyBook 1140 USB drive attached via USB3 connection, and apparently has something to do with being spun down.  It won't log the above error if it's already spun up.
The system drive is a RAID 5 array of SSDs managed by Intel RST.  No part of RST seems to even know about the backup drive, so I doubt this is an issue.
I'm not sure why Explorer or anything should be trying to access this particular drive when I log in, nor why it being spun down should cause an error even if something does access it.  It's a pretty lean system, without very much that runs upon
logon.
I have the latest Western Digital drivers, and the drive is otherwise perfectly healthy.  Every 3 hours a backup runs and it logs no errors at that time - just when I log into the system interactively, either by RDP or locally on the console.
I prefer to have my systems run error-free, and this is one of two classes of errors I'm trying to eliminate (the other being a recurring registry access error logged by Microsoft Security Essentials, which seems unrelated).

Any ideas?

A:The device, \Device\Harddisk2\DR2, has a bad block.

In my experience, which spans 3+ decades, a disk drive reporting a bad block is doomed to failure, and not too long from now.
Do NOT continue to rely on this drive!
If you don't already have full System Image backups, make a fresh one now, while you still can (while the bad blocks are being recovered).  Don't overwrite any older backups, either!  Buy a new MyBook external USB drive if you have to - they're
not expensive.
You might want to attempt a full backup BEFORE you try a CHKDSK operation. 
CHKDSK will stress already weak/failing hardware, and you might lose everything.  I've been there, done that.
And when you consder what replacement drive to buy, keep in mind that with an electromechanical device you get what you pay for.  I recommend getting only top of the line, high MTBF drives such as the Western Digital RE4 series. 
They're a bit more expensive (but not insanely so), and consider the cost to you, even just in time alone, of complete loss of your data.

Does this mean that I have a bad on my HDD or could it be some error, like windows can't read a corrupted file?

I believe Quicktime may be searching for a card reader of some sort. If you have one, plug it back in. It's looking to the last location of files it played. To make it forget, keep trying to get the message to close. With the Quicktime Player open, Click on File, Open Recent, and Clear Menu.

I've been having that error pop up on several applications ever since I plugged my Samsung Messenger III into my computer. I firmly believe the problem is not a virus because I have searched the error and people have been having problems with memory cards not installing or whatever.

Thanks for any help you guys can give me.

Samsung products, in my experience, especially their software, is/are below par. And often non-intuitive. So I'm not surprised you're having a problem.

What is your pop-up error? Same one for each app?

What machine (Brand & model) are you running XP on?

Do the problems with your apps go away when you uninstall the Samsung software, or is it embedded in the phone?

i was playing that game with that driver the Intel one, but when i try to re-install it again that message appears.

I?ve tried with multiple USB drives and different backup software including Acronis True Image, Freecoms NTI Shadow 3 and the Windows 7 Backup tool. Each time a series of Event ID 51?s appear after a period of time and stops the backup.
Ive read other threads which suggested installing Hotfix 976972, but again this hasn?t fixed the problem. I have already tried Safe Mode and this has made no difference. The USB controllers have also been removed, and re-installed, but again no joy. I even tried copying the data in My Documents to a USB drive and that caused exactly the same event to be generated.

It would seem that there are other Users out there with exactly the same problem, but I haven?t come across a fix yet. Not being able to backup my laptop is a major concern and I?m thinking of reverting back to XP.

Dear all,
This is my first post.
Can anyone help with how to solve the following hard disc error please?
On booting up the system log shows disc error 51 - An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk0\D during a paging operation

M$ says is means the drive is about to fail. I've got a full back up in case...

The error only appears on boot up but can end in a complete lock up and failure to boot.
It does not happen every time (say 1 in 10) and is more likely from a cold start.
The error is logged for about two seconds (ie multiple entries), no other system errors are reported.
I've replaced the hard drive and am getting the same error.
Changing the SATA lead to a new port makes no difference.

I'm using XP Home
1GB RAM,
SATA 300 GB drive

The drive is partitioned to C (installed OS) D (User data)
I've reformatted the drive - it shows no errors and reinstalled the OS.
I've also tried changing the page file settings - no change.

Any suggestions greatfully received.

A:Hard disc Error 51 during paging operation

Hi .Contrary to what you may have been told, that message is not the kiss of death .The problem is that there is much varied speculation about what causes this error...and little definitive info re cures/resolutions that I can understand.Your mention of the paging file...indicates that you've read some of the same situations.The fact that it happens at boot should be useful...but it's not for me. Where (exactly) in the boot process does this error kick in? When the system first starts to load? When some driver is being installed?http://support.packardbell.com/it/item/ind...;ppn=PB17B00706http://pcs.suite101.com/article.cfm/windows_xp_boot_sequenceI suppose that, in the face of such underwhelming evidence either way...the safe thing to do is assume that the drive is failing/faulty.I missed the most important info that you posted, my apologies . Since you have a D: partition, I would run chkdsk /r on that partition...then I would run a manufacturer's diagnostic on the entire drive (I don't think it differentiates between partitions on a drive).FWIW: I don't believe in any system having only one hard drive, having at least 2 gives user much better options in situations like yours.Louis

I have recently installed Windows98se. Now in Device Manager listing, Under Other device, it showed an Unknown device listed with a yellow exclamation on it. So, I remove that device and restarted my pc. After that on startup, it showed that this wizard will search for drivers for this Unknown device. But I could not find the drivers for this device. So I selected : Display list of devices.

In that I selected Other devices. On clicking next, it showed an Unknown device in the left and Unsupported device in the right box.

I bought a Samsung SH-S202N DVD Writer. I installed it properly but whenever I insert a CD or DVD into it Windows hangs (nothing happens,even the mouse pointer doesn't move, Task Manager can't open, dead nothing). Checking Event Viewer I found the following: "The driver detected a controller error on \Device\CdRom0." When I remove the media from the drive Windows ceases hanging. Can anyone help me out? Thanks in advance.
P.S: I don't think it's the IDE cables, I've already replaced them 3 times but no change. :evil:

I've been getting these errors in the event log for a while now.. also have a few bsods. I've reinstalled windows a few times and at present it seems stable, however I still get these messages.

I don't think its a particular harddrive as it'l be different numbers, harddisk3/DR3, harddisk7/DR7 for example. Plus two drives are brand new and i've replaced the sata cables just in case.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Gentlemen.

Recently i had some kerfuffle with this Kernel_stack_inpage_error. I sent my PC back to the manufacturer's who incompetently installed a new CPU Fan. I receieved the machine a month later and experienced the same STOP 0x077 errors as before. Under teh advice of my friend ( a knowledgable type) i bought and installed a new SATA HDD (Maxtor 250gb)

Ive recently started getting the errors again, but this time i can actually see an entry in the event viewer, the titular "The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk0\D"

An avid gamer, the last time this happened was when i had exited World of Warcraft, and started to load up Steam and TF2. As the program began to load, something mustve gone kablooey, because it bluescreened.

Now im not technologically minded, but i would assume that "The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk0\D" means i have a problem with either

a) The <1mth old Hdd,
b) The cabling from Mobo to HDD
c) Something else.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Lord knows MESH doesnt know whats going on.

Thanks.

I was made aware of this problem by a Razer diagnostic I ran, link here: (http://i540.photobucket.com/albums/gg334/jakeebo/rzrdiag.png)

Does that mean the one mentioned in the EVENT was just actually my flash drive? Why was it called a harddisk???

It's shown all drives/partitions. I also got some directX errors when it crashed..

It's only crashed and shown me errors visually when running cod4 and because it has given me Video and HD errors I think maybe my 500watt power supply is at fault, its probably crapping out under heavy load.

Hi,

For the past week this error message has appeared on my screen upon boot:

USB Over Current Status Detected, Computer will shut down in 15 seconds

I've been determined to solve it but it just won't go away. I cannot get my computer started at all, or even access BIOS settings. My computer specification can be found in the link in the top right, the motherboard in question is the ASUS P5K-E.

After reading forum discussions involving the same problem, I've tried nearly everything.


Disconnecting front USB panel,
Removing all USB devices before switching on
Resetting CMOS
Powering up the computer with minimum components connected
Checked for short circuit problems (spare screws/motherboard touching case...)

The remaining suggestions are;


starting it up outside of the case
loosening the screws that connect the motherboard to the case

I'm going to attempt them solutions tomorrow. I would like to know if there are any other solutions to this problem though, as I am quickly running out of ideas. Perhaps the error is not caused by a short circuit and could be something else?

Lastly, I must mention that the computer has operated without the problem for 12 months. HOWEVER; one USB port (onboard) has been unstable for around two months since I tried connecting my keyboard (instrument) to my computer. I seen a message pop up in the bottom right hand corner indicating "power surge on USB port" (or something close). When I seen th... Read more

Well it states a controller error in your first (or only) HardDrive

This can be:
Your HardDrive (sometimes you may notice that it's noisy, or clunking)
Your IDE data cable (can be just a faulty data cable to the HardDrive)
Faulty IDE0 port on Motherboard (you could try plugging it into IDE1 - where the CD/DVD is)
Faulty Motherboard (Oh dear, no comment)
Sometimes it can even be the CD/DVD drive causing the issue (try unplugging it from the M/b)

That's about all

Recently I reformatted my HD and clean install win 7 ultimate 32 bit on my computer, bcuz of some problems when booting up, took like forever to boot or 2 to 3 restarts..At first BIOS cant detect my HD so I taught its a hardware issue I did like changing the sata cable also took it to a technician TWICE! maybe the sata port was broken they check all the connection, the last one did fix it but im still having difficulty booting up..He said one last option reformat, so i did reformat it successfully from win xp, now it boots up just fine its running good no problem for like a week yeah just 1 week!. Now my pc has new problem or is it?? Whenever I used it 2 to 3 hours my pc hangs so much even just opening event viewer would take me 5 to 10 mins and 2 errors always flood event viewer the first time i saw it disk error reach 5231 and nvistor32 reach 5366 errors, right now as I am writing this, Disk error reach a waaping 23,145 total. I think this is a serious problem that needs some fixing....

Questions:
1..Is my HD failing??My pc is fairly new about 1.5 years old. I dont think its the hard drive, if so then why those two errors are always together i know nvistor32 is from Nvidia for the SATA right?...

2..Am I just having sooo much badluck that that the 1st problem i had before reformatting it has nothing to do with this (completely new) problems??

please any help is greatly appreciated..Its driving me crazy and almost goes to the point of throwing it outside yikes!!

A:The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort7.

Typically, you have Sata ports 0, 1, 2, 3, then IDE ports 4 and 5. If you have 6 SATA ports then the IDE ports would be 6 and 7. See if you can find the manual for your computer or better yet system board, it should have a layout of the hard drive ports.

Hi All

(Question : How do I verify what hard drive is installed on device5? I am going to try another sata cable once identified. In BIOS Sata 2 is the SSD and Sata 5 is the WD 150gb Raptor. Micron controller in BIOS relates to drives 6/7 & 8/9. Switched these of only impacted my DVD drive and the WD1TB data drive).

I have performed a resintall, restored from an windows image backup back in August which was performed after a fresh install.

Symptoms : Random bsod and some intermittent hanging for 1 to 2 mins. Suspected a new SSD drive which is what led to the reinstall. Ref previous thread :

Most current occurred when perfomering new backup in Windows7 data backup appears crashed during data transfer.

Pre Resintall actions :

Updated firmware to SSD and Bios to latest available from manufacturers websites.
Updated chipset drivers.
Updated all drivers available : Soundcard/GFX/Windows updates.
Ran Setools and all drives report back positive/ok.
Ran Eset Nod32 scan (smart scan) of whole system, all drives. Nothing found.
Ran AntiMalwareBytes nothing found.

A:BSOD :The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort5.

Looking through the Event log, I see that this is a restore from the broken image
I would really suggest that you do a fresh clean install - otherwise things are going to get *really* complicated
(Like, you're already in the WGA grace period, because the hardware has been detected as changed)
Just don't activate the new install until you're happy with it.
