Hard Disk Error

I am getting this error:

The device, \Device\Harddisk0\D, has a bad block.

What confuses me is it says, D which I am assuming is the drive letter
of the disk having the problem.

Yet when I go into the propeties of my hard drives I see the D: drive
as Disk1 and my C/E partition being on Disk0. Obviously this is
annoyingly confusing as I am now not sure which disk I need to
replace.

Does the D actually refer to the drive letter?

They appear to both be on the same IDE Controller, the primary IDE which is
called IDE0. The secondary IDE Controller is called IDE1.
