Driver disabled write cache on device \Device\Harddisk0\DR0.

After reinstalling a RAID Controller on a DELL machine and checking the event viewer we decided not to take chances with this error. We fixed it by right clicking drive C -> Properties -> Hardware -> Properties -> Policies and unchecking "Write Cache Enabled".
As per Microsoft: "This problem occurs if you have installed one or more storage devices that do not support cache commands. The Windows 2000 SP4 Disk.sys driver writes many events to the system log when it performs write operations to a storage device that does not support cache commands". See ME830051 for a hotfix.
ME233541 describes some of the advanced performance options available if you view the properties of a hard disk. It gives information on the "Write Cache Enabled" feature.
Windows 2000 disables write cache on domain controllers in order to prevent Active Directory database corruption in case a power outage or other unexpected stoppage occurs.
