  • This could indicate an hardware problem, I would advice you to do the following

    1. Backup the disk if possible
    2. Ensure the Drivers and Firmware on the controller are up-to-date
    3. If the error repeats with lastest Drivers/FW then consider opening a call with hardware support, or replace the controller

    HTH,

  • I don't think that \Device\Harddisk6\DR6 is a DVD/CD device.

    can you double check ?

  • Hi pawanmadan12345

    I have the same errors. I traced it back. On my system it is the card reader of my Canon printer.

    Every time I turn on my Canon Pixma MP760, the error occurs.

    I ignore it and clean my log.
