F:\ is not accessible. Help please.

  1. Well, heres my story and I hope someone can help.

    A few weeks back, my computer got a BSOD and when I got it fixed, I tried to access my F: Drive. Unfortunately, my driver wouldn't open and this error message would pop up "F:\ is not accessible. The request could not performed because of an I/O device error." That is the exact error message that would show up and nothing more.

    I tried to google the error, but I didn't get any help. So I thought someone here might be able to help :D.

    I also tried to reformat my F: drive, but everytime I right click the drive, my computer freezes up.

    Extra Information:
    +My computer is a desktop.
    +My F: drive is just an extra drive that stores stuff. My C: drive contains 50 gigs of my memory and my F: drive contains 70 gigs of my memory. So you can tell that I need my F: drive D:.



    If anyone could help, I would greatly appriciate it.

    Just ask if you need clerification on anything else.

    When you say 'memory' do you mean 'data'!

    Sata or Ide drives?

    What else do you have installed? cd,dvd,floppy and what drive letters do they have?
