Try these solutions in the following order: Solution 1: Make certain that all cables are connected correctly If the drive is an external drive, make sure that the cable that connects the computer to the drive is functioning correctly. My current backup drive is newer Elements 1.81 TB USB 3 drive that works without a problem. Step 3 – Select the menu icon to expand the “IDE ATA/ATAPI” controller display. These include: - Outdated or corrupt driver installation for the affected hardware device. - Windows using an incompatible transfer mode for the hardware. - Faulty or loose connection with the hardware. - The portable media (CD, DVD, or SD card) is damaged or excessively dirty.
The hard drive is running and not making any noise. The process fails with two messages. up vote 9 down vote favorite 9 I ordered a bunch of 1GB usb drives from a semi-shady Chinese company. What could be causing this to happen???
Right clicking offers me to option to initialize it, and has 2 partition styles available, but trying either one will cause the "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error" message to appear. My questions are:-Did anybody had it work with a SD or flash card?-None of the files are deleted if the chkdsk works, does it? Let me know how this goes and if it fixes the problem for you. Step 2 – If the error persists, connect the drive to an alternative USB port on the computer.

Ask ! http://www.tune-your-pc.com/blog/what-is-an-io-device-error-and-how-to-fix-it/ Existing bootable CD disks work fine, but the one that I have been trying to make for several days using both tools and media from different names including Sony and Emtec produce the disk I/O error. OMG i have so much important data on that external drive :O sula Born Posts: 1 3+ Months Ago IcaseII have a 64 gb sd card.. i dont need help...thanks anyway Araluen Born Posts: 1 3+ Months Ago Like a few of the other people have already asked, how on earth do you get the chkdsk cmd to work on fixing a corrupted RAW file?!
I'm not sure how else to do this. Thanks again,KevinP.S. I'm not prepared to buy a new laptop and I cannot replace the data that is on my drive. However a google search for the link title got me on the correct WD knowledge base page.
Thank you. You might be tempted to partition the stick to use the intact area (not sure whether that would make much sense on a 1GB stick anyway), but the wear-leveling of the flash controller will, over time and depending on write cycles, try to utilize all flash memory cells to spread wear evenly over the whole flash. The sticks are not to save, unfortunately. –elgonzo Dec 17 '13 at 6:57 One more important thing: Do not use those defective sticks anymore! http://orgias.org/i-o/i-o-error-on-device-hdc-logical-block-0.html Try to remove and reconnect them and try to copy the files again.o Always keep updated CD drivers:You should always keep updating the CD drivers, if CD drivers are old then the operating system won't be able to read it.
Fixed by changing the SATA port on the motherboard the original Drive was connected to. But now that i tried to format it back to vista with my usb flash driver, it told me that there is an I/O Error, also when i tried to install/boot with the cd, and im sure there is nothing wrong with the cd, its new. I also tried every option you did, except for the sacrificial offering - I did not have a goat handy and my dogs are just too damn cute.
it seems im capable of formatting the Hard drive as exFAT.. Can you please help? This error is more likely to happen when you are trying to transfer the data which your CD cannot use or don't recognize.Some steps to solve the I/O device error:o You should check for defective Disc in your computer:You will generally get this message if your CD disc is dirty. Click on FILES, then on the right side, find the correct vendor.
Why did Moody eat the school's sausages? It's highly likely that all your drives are in fact "fake" - they either report a larger capacity than they actually have, they use substandard factory-rejected flash chips, or both. Any help would be awsim! http://orgias.org/i-o/i-o-device-error-1117-r-studio.html I have plugged it into different ports on the computer and even tried to use it on a laptop and it still will not open.

Guester1 Born Posts: 1 3+ Months Ago Hi, I may have a silly solution - I am no techie so apologies if this does not work for you.I had an I/O error too with my usb key. After figuring that out, I went to this Russian website that listed all sorts of flash tools here: flashboot.ru Make sure you're using Chrome so they can translate the website for you. Am not sure if I selected the correct device but the I/O device error still persisted.3) Tried the cmd method but the chkdsk was aborted for some reason(Please refer to PrintScreen attached).4) Can't find the Registry Cleaner on both of my computers - Window XP & Windows Vista.Any advices would be greatly appreciated.Thanks in advance!
In most cases, you can d/l them from their site and create a boot disk. If this did not resolve the IO issue, continue to solution 2. However it does not seem to be appearing under the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers tab.
