Keep seeing a recurring error event 11 in Windows 7

I keep seeing the following error code popping up randomly but
frequently in my Event Viewer (ATAPI, Event ID 11):

"The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort2."

Now, IdePort2 is one of my two DVD burners, and it's got nothing inside
it, and I'm not even accessing it most of the time. Now when I do use
that DVD drive (either for reading or writing), I don't see any errors
and everything works normally with it. Any idea what to make of this?

It says "controller error". The controller is on your mainboard.
Maybe some polling routine loses the occasional interrupt
or something like that.

That's what I was thinking too. Just wanted to confirm with others here.

Check for a DVD drive firmware update. At least that seemed to cure a
similar event 11 problem that I had last year. (as did replacing the DVD
drive with a different model) ???

Wasn't even aware that this was possible.
