Event ID 51 logged when returning from standby/sleep mode, Memeo Background Service error

  • The setup :

* My Book Essential 2TB, USB 2.0

* Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP3 is out of question, unfortunately)

  • The Event ID problem :

http://eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=51&eventno=793&source=Disk&phase=1 (all the relevant information on this ID)

This seems to be logged into the system log in event viewer every time the disk returns from standby/sleep state. Usually it’s just one entry, but sometimes there’s more of them (two or three, not dozens).

I know this:

* it’s not logged on Windows 7 (I tested this on my laptop)

* it’s logged with and without SmartWare

* it’s not logged on WD My Book 500GB or 1TB (if they even have similar sleep modes, I think they don’t?)

One way to go round this problem would be disabling the sleep mode from SmartWare’s settings, but is this really a wise way to go round the problem? I’d guess the sleep mode is there to optimize disk health. Is there any difference to an idle state disk though, other than power related? The disk is my main storage and docked 24/7 and in use several hours every day, so I want to make sure it doesn’t fail at any point.

The warning itself doesn’t seem to do anything special, it’s just there as a small nuisance. I’m sure the disk’s health is OK, it’s less than a week old. I’ve done scandisk and the like.

So should I just ignore this error, disable the sleep state or is there something else I could do?

  • The Memeo Background Service error :

This is SmartWare related. It’s logged into the application log in event viewer every time the system is booted and SmartWare is started.

I assume it’s related to the backup function of SmartWare, but I’m not exactly sure what this is because I don’t use the software for that purpose.

Any reply would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!


Anyone? I’ve tried three different USB cables as well, but the problem persists. Google’s telling me it’s nothing serious to worry about, but I’d really love to terminate the errors.
