Error: Device Not Ready


Recommended Posts

Quite often, when my external drive gets briefly disconnected, I get these errors popping up on dozens of torrents for several days:

"Error: The Device Not Ready (Read From Disk)"

It makes sense to me that I would get this error immediately after the interruption, but it doesn't make sense to me to get this error

for several hours and even days after the disconnection.   

The torrents involved go inactive, but are easily fixed by clicking on them and then FORCE START.  

I have one suggestion to fix almost all instances of this error.. whenever that error comes up, Utorrent should automatically make ONE

attempt to FORCE START it (perhaps after a time delay of 1 minute to give the user the chance to deal with the interruption ).
