External hard drive controller going bad
This morning I had an error in my Event Viewer/system log.
"The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk5\DR5."
My questions: is the controller on the disk or a part of Win 7? How do I repair/replace the controller?
I had the same message about another disk 2 days ago and yesterday that disk turned up as bad.
Thanks for any help.
