i've been troubleshooting problems my PC is having with audio and in doing so, i came across these errors under System in Event Viewer The device, \Device\Harddisk0\D, is not ready for access yet. Are these common? Anything to worry about? I have XP SP2 with 2 SATA drives, no IDE (except IDE CD/DVD)...an Asus A8V Deluxe mobo with latest drivers all around. Again, these happen in pairs...two always at the exact same time. Is this showing me i have some problem somewhere? any clues? thanks!
