Which drive is this referencing?

    Windows XP Pro SP3

    Found errors in the system log like this:

    The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort3, did not respond within the timeout
    period.

    How do I map that to a drive name I'd recognize, like maybe the drive
    numbers shown in the "Disk Management" function, or a drive letter?

    Yeah, that's always fun to figure out, especially since some systems are
    set up to show SATA drives as tertiary IDE, others as primary or
    secondary IDE, others as SCSI drives, etc.

    Thanks; the info I need is probably in there somewhere. This might take
    a little study, although I think I already know which drive is flaking
    out.
