Hiyya seeker I have just bought a Seagate Expansion portable drive - 500Gb and before I even used it ran a Kaspersky scan and then a ckdsk to make sure everything was tickateeboo and it came up no probs. The part number should you like to have a look is 9SD2A4-500.
I have ID'ed a possible culprit for some of the disk errors a WD My Passport -
WD8AAA3200ABK which would not only dismount / disable but made some fairly odd noises when operating. Ended up having to just unplug the damn thing and it's gone.
Now my original problem is still with me - now with my new desktop - disk controller errors - not many but my problem is ID'ing the drive involving the errors namely the ref to Device\Harddisk1\DR1 and my primary C: (internal HDD) is listed as Drive 0
This has become a real mystery to me as searching for an answer even the microsoft support site http://support.microsoft.com/defaul...kb;EN-US;159865
however correct the info that it gives still gives me my primary drive as 0
and this wierd reference to Drive 1 in the eventvwr is to say the least bizarre!
I did a chkdsk on the internal (?main HDD) last night without anything plugged in - storage wise - just the monitor, wireless mouse/keyboard, printer, and audio system (small Logitec), and still come up with that ref to Drive 1.
So don't know where to go to next - at a loss to find the cause of the error entries.
