Disk Event ID 51

For Disk event ID 51 on a W2K Advanced Server, what does the "DR" # represent? I've looked everywhere and even started to decode the data section but to no avail. The "DR" # will increment over time, eventually hit 10, and then start back at 1, but it's the same physical disk and it contains only one logical volume. I'm leaning towards it involving the SCSI device driver, but I'm not sure. This server is not SAN attached. Thanks in advance!

do you have a RAID array? this is usually an indicator from what I have seen to which disk in the array that windows is looking at... (if I am remembering correctly from the times I have seen this on our servers)

Do you have an event id 32 as well?
Event ID 32 and Event ID 51 appear repeatedly in the system log in Windows 2000 SP4

I apologize for saying this was not SAN attached, as Harddisk1, the one I'm interested in, is on a SAN. The local disks are the OS drives and I am not getting any drive errors for the locally attached drives. I do not have access to the the storage array the drives for Harddisk1 are kept, so I do not know their exact configuration, but I do know that the volume is not made up of 10 drives as it is only about 14 GBs in size, and our standard harddrive size is 72 GB and our smallest is 36GB. So that still leaves me wondering why the "DR" increments...

Also, I'm not concerned that I'm getting the errors as I am more concerned what the "DR" # is referring to, and there are no event ID 32s along with it.

Harddisk1 = Second Disk, this can usually be determined by looking in the Disk Administrator for Windows...

DR# from what I remember refers to the disk in a specific array (ie RAID/SAN/etc)...
