I had the same error. I think it is due to a chipset bug or bad drivers. Let me explain:

I have Windows 7 64 bits on ASUS P5B-VM motherboard that has ICH8 with 4 SATA ports and one JMicron JMB363 controller with 2 SATA ports.


I had X25-M G2 80GB connected to SATA1 and Seagate ST3500418AS connected to SATA2 (both on ICH8) all with Microsoft drivers. This worked without any problem for a month.

Then, one day I connected another Seagate ST3500320AS to SATA3 (next free port of ICH8) and I started to get freezes and "controller error on \ Device \ HardDisk0 \ DR0".

Only solution that worked for me: I removed Seagate ST3500320AS from port of ICH8 and connected it to JMicron JMB363 controller.

No one single error from that day!
