I/O error

  1. I could not open my USB files, instead I get the following message "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error"
    Can anybody help me to identify this error and how to sort it out?

    Many thanks in advance

    -try on a different port
    -try on another pc. if it doesnt work there its dead. (or at least screwed)
    -goto [right click my computer>manage>disk management] try and find it there.
    -goto [right click my computer>properties>hardware>device manager] goto your USB section onthe bottom. uninstall evereything. reboot. reinstall whatever hardware wiz picks up tehn plug in your USB device
    -if you are using win98 get teh correct drivers for it....

    i'm going to sleep soon so be patient.. i'm sure someone else in another time zone will help you out..
