removable storage drive error
« on: November 09, 2012, 06:30:11 AM »
Hi
I bought a removable usb 500gig drive from my local computer store,
they built it(as in put the hd into an enclosure) and while it seems to work
fine(I can read and write to it) I get error 51 in event viewer :An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk1\D during a paging operation.-If these events are logged regularly on a primary system drive, replace the device. Otherwise, no user action is required.

Now since that is from microsoft it says to ignore it as long as it is not a primary system
drive,my removable is not a primary drive,is it? I also did a full scandisk and came out fine.
The drive is not damaged as it works and smart says it is fine was wondering why I get that
error everytime I plug it in? Any ideas??
I have googled it so many time with no real explanation-the store tested the drive before
putting it in the enclosure so I am sure it is not bad and I also formatted it before use.

Your primary drive is what ever drive Windows is running off of. And I see that error in the event viewer all the time on all my customers machines with their external drives when I do backups to them. I ignore it :-)

Thanks Bud
you are smarter than te folks at milwaukee PC (that is who made the drive)
one told me not to use it and the other accused me of yanking the usb
cable out of the port,dummys.I dont think I will be having them build my
new pc for me-small towns bite,help I am surrounded by Idiots!
I assumed to ignore that message as the last line of the error said
if it is not my primary drive then no user action is needed(I told you that)
sorry......

At least I did not mess anything up-the worst thing I did years ago was when
I was using regcleaner to look for unused file extensions and removed the extension
for an exe file-you can Imagine what happened after that-my pc was a very nice
paperweight!!! Dummy(me)

You are so smart Shane, I bow to the west.

I have repairs for the exe if you ever do that again lol

If you decide to build your own PC let me know, I can mail you the shopping cart from newegg.com of the systems I build for customers :-)

This changes from time to time of course, currently it is amd 6 core, 8gb of ram, mirrored 500 gb western digital enterprise drives. Dvd burner and such. All with warranties from the manufactures themselves.

Building your own is always fun, if you change your mind I can give you a list of hardware.

If you mess up the reg keys to run exe files I have a fix for it. Puts the reg keys back. Some viruses take over that reg key so every program you open it will open the virus.

So if you couldnt open any exe it is just a reg key to change back :-)

I dont see how that could work as regedit is an exe as is explorer.
So when I removed that extension and restarted all I got was a blank
destop?So how would you merge a reg file if you could not open a folder?
Confused.....

lol no being secret, just have to handle it as it comes. What may work on one machine may not work on yours. Have to see how hard it is hit and what options there is to apply the fix. That is all :wink:
