IDE Error in Server 2k3

By cbader ·
I have received this error on a couple of different servers and Im trying to find the cause:

\Device\Ide\IdePort0, did not respond within the timeout period.

There are no other errors in the event logs, it has not caused any decreased performance (One server only has one drive and it didnt crash when it got the error), the servers are all Dell (Models 1950, and 2850). Any ideas?

It may have simply missed a check of LUN devices while the server was extremely busy. Could be from a missed page write.
I would increase memory in any server that you can, verify drives status with diagnosis tests, and check for any BIOS updates that involve drives or DMI.
