    Ok, someone with more experience has to help me out on this one... So the options it could be are-
    1. Bad Controller
    2. Bad SATA Cable
    3. Bad Driver
    4. Bad HDD
    I have checked the SATA cables, swapped them around with known working ones (they worked on the HDD above it w/o errors)
    Which ones should I check next? This is on my 320GB 7200.10.

    heh, maybe a bad SATA port, but will let it be for a while to see if the error pops up again. It seems to be just intermittent from the get-go... so who knows. So far after 5m no errors of that kind in EvntVwr.

    while your at it try and run it through an HDTune bench. and check the smart data... the test will hopefully (or maybe not) force a reacurance if the controller is bad and SMART should tell you if its a bad drive. it might not be the mobo at all though. it might be the controller on the HDD logic board itself.
