Windows 7: Event Error?

Event Error?

Hey guys. Ive noticed recently with every reboot I get a log in the event error refering to IDE port 5. I was thinking it may have been in reference to a Hard Drive.

I have no IDE devices however, they are all SATA 2, with the exception of my Bluray Drive which is a SATA 1 in the following SATA ports:

Intel SSD Port 0/ Vertex SSD Port2/ WD 640GB Port 3/ WD 1TB Port 4/ BD Drive Port 5

Ive ran a sfc /scan now which was clean and disk check and all HDs which also comes up clean.

No other apparrent issues or funny noises etc from drives so Im curious what this may be refering to.

Im not sure exactly whats generating this. Thoughts where to look? Thanks
it seems to generate an error only when I reboot. If its up a day or 2, nothing.

Does your motherboard have an IDE controller on it?
If so, perhaps disabling it in the BIOS is your answer.
Also... make sure you SATA controllers are set to AHCI mode.

Source of error is Atapi. Its your optical drive (unless you have a tape backup also).

Already in AHCI, and no, the bluray is the only optical.

Would this mean its going bad or possibly something else?

I am not sure how to test a optical drive.

Well, before testing the drive, maybe just wiggle the wires around a bit. Also, try reinstalling the ATA channels in device manager (they are under IDE\ATAPI Controllers). But would suggest you check the BD drive manual or consult the drive manufacturer for instructions on the testing.

Question answered.


Unistalling the ATAPI driver rebooting and letting it re-instal seems to have resolved the issue.
For ther last 2 re-boots at least.

Thank you both for your responses, Ill look into further as suggested.
