method of distinguishing SATA drives when software mirroring

I have a Windows 2000 system with software mirrored SATA drives. Event Viewer is indicating that the secondary mirror has bad blocks and so we are going to replace it.  Is there any way to be  sure which drive in disk manager - - drive 0 the primary mirror or drive 1- the secondary mirror - -  corresponds with which physical SATA drive?

On your motherboard you can look to see which of the drives are plugged into which port, for instance your primary drive should be in SATA0 (or 1) and your secondary drive will be in SATA1 (or 2).

Or if you go into Device Manager and look at the hard drives. In the general tab of each one there should be a Location: 0 for the primary and a Location: 1 for the secondary
