>> Event ID 51 An error was detected on device DeviceHarddisk0D during a paging operation
Here is an update to my post concerning Event ID 51 “An error was detected on device DeviceHarddisk0D during a paging operation” . back on Feburary 12, 2009 on this topic.
The original post was in reference to an external USB WD MyBook (02/12/2009). After cracking open the case and installing the hard drive internally, these errors stopped. In the past few weeks I experienced the exact same behavior with a Samsung G3 Station 1TB USB external storage enclosure tested on two different computers running Windows XP SP3 and generating the exact same error. I once again cracked open the case and installed the hard drive internally, and again stopped these errors. In addition, I have purchased multiple hard drive enclosures where you provide and install the hard drive into the enclosure (enclosure + hard drive purchased separately) without experiencing any of these errors.
My conclusion, based on my experiences, is that these all in one hard drive USB external enclosures come with proprietary circuit control boards. These mini boards seem to be equipped with automatic sleep mode built in for your convienence (or inconvienence,
if you follow me), and at some predetermined time (very short) put the drive in sleep mode when the drive is not being accessed. I believe that while in this vendor provided sleep mode, when the system needs to access this device either for the processing of data or to check on the device, that this process generates these errors. Though I do not think the errors indicated any problems, but rather are false negatives, thus possibly confusing the indication at some point that a real issue might exist.
So for me. in the future I will stay away from such external storage devices and either go with internal storage or purhcase separately the hard drive and enclosure and use this configuration only. In these types of confgurations, I have yet to see any of these isolated Event ID 51 errors.
