I keep getting the following message at regular intervals and would be grateful for any assistance as to how to correct it, message as follows;

The driver detected a controller error on
\device\Harddisk1\D

It *COULD* be an indication that your hard drive is failing, so make sure you have all of your important data safely backed up in separate media.

controller is the card on the hard drive, look like a faulty drive

PS you need to get all you Data off the Drive on to some other kind of media before it stops altogether

Also try another Data Cable on the Drive

Thanks guys, I've already done that as I'm getting a new system next week. You've confirmed what I suspected for some time now, cheers
