Windows 7: How to local IdePort2

How to local IdePort2

Event Viewer returned an Error of EventID 11 - The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort2.

My question is which physical device is IdePort2?

Bios shows the following ide channels:

IDE Channel 0 Master - Hard Disk 1
IDE Channel 0 Slave - Hard Disk 2
IDE Channel 1 Master - Hard Disk 3
IDE Channel 1 Slave - Hard Disk 4
IDE Channel 2 Master - DVD drive
IDE Channel 3 Master - Hard Disk 5

Is IdePort2 Hard Disk 3 or DVD drive?

I have disabled the DVD drive in Windows 7, but still got the same error.

Normally, computers start counting at zero, so 0, 1, 2...

IDE port 2 would theoretically be physically the third IDE port or channel 2. I say theoretically, because Windows uses logical drives, and it may not be reporting the actual physical port, but the logical port instead.

I'm not trying to be confusing. Likely, the problem really is in channel 2 (DVD drive). Disabling the channel in Windows may not be enough. You may have to disable channel 2 in BIOS to get the error to go away.

Keep in mind that this could be a symptom of a motherboard problem. Boot into BIOS and disable channel 2 and see if the problem continues, and let us know what happens.

if you want to know it how windows sees it then open a elevated command prompt and then do "diskpart" then do "list disk" and it will show you the order windows sees them. same thing in disk management.

It looks like a loose cable issue. Replugging the SATA cable solved my problem.
