Default XP and delayed write failed

Anyone ever get this error? I get it at random and then my "D" drive disappears and even the mobo bios doesnt even see it. I have to shut off the PC for a few secs then reboot and everything works fine.

Any clues here? My "D" drive is a brand new western digital 120GB hardd drive. Don't seem to have any problems with it other than this and it happens at randome times.


Help !!!!

Try swapping IDE cables, could be a connector issue. Check and make sure there aren't any bent pins on the back of the hard drive.

Saw this while surfing today... May or may not have anything to do with your particular issue but it's about delayed write failure w/XP.

I had that happen to a WD1800JB. Go to wd.com and check the support area for a test utility. I had to RMA my drive, since it was quickly dying. Lost my whole pre-DRMA mp3 collection since its kinda hard to back up 40gigs on cd. Don't wanna get you riled up, but better safe than sorry.

I had this same problem last month, I knew "delayed write failed" error 6 months ago, it not caused by IDE drives, VIA 4in1 4.50 driver had a very nasty bug caused delayed write failed error, it was very annoyed bug. VIA released 4in1 4.51 driver to fixed this issue, you need to download VIA 4in1 4.51 driver.

Your "D" drive disappeared when your PC booted up first time but appeared at the next boot, I still have that issue for 1 year. Since last month I bought a new 120GB Maxtor hard drive as the primary and my previous 60GB Maxtor hard drive as secondary. Now I have 2 hard drives, 1 DVD-ROM and 1 CD-RW, I was noticed my system cannot coped with 4 IDE devices and XP hang at boot screen. I disconnected 2 secondary IDE cables, it worked fine and then I connected 2nd hard drive, it worked fine but added CD-RW was not worked. I figured out what gone wrong, is it IDE cable faulty or onboard secondary IDE controller failed or cant handle 2 devices but can only handle 1 device. Then I swapped primary DVD-ROM IDE cable to CD-RW and it worked, after that, I swapped secondary IDE cable to DVD-ROM and it turned not worked. That turned to be onboard secondary IDE controller is faulty, it now can handle 1 device at a time, that left my system to coped with 3 IDE devices.

My motherboard is now 2 years old, it near worned out, the problem will never go away, I suggest you to get new motherboard, same as me, I will wait for Socket 939 motherboard with PCI Express in October.
