Hope someone can help. I've looked up this problem but still have no clue how to fix it. Here is my problem: Every couple of minutes my PC slows down or halts. I went to event viewer and noticed this error: devicedeviceideide port 0 did not respond within the timeout period. Event ID 9, atapi. I do not know why this is happening. I know it's annoying. I'm doing the necessary backup to reformat my pc. Which I really did not want to do. Please can someone help me before I format. I have at least 15 cdr's worth of stuff to back up. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
PS- I went to microsoft and looked up ide 9 errors, but I still do not understand what they ask for.
