I have a drive that is constantly freezing the system. When I reboot the system it does a resynch that takes for ever. It renders the server almost useless. I am running server 2003.
The error I get is: The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort2, did not respond within the timeout period.
and warning: The driver has detected that device \Device\Ide\IdePort2 has old or out-of-date firmware. Reduced performance may result.
Can I turn off mirroring untl the new drive arrives to increase performance?
How do I know which drive is bad?
Where can i get updated firmware?
