Hello
I Have a seagate external hard drive.
In some folders I cant access the folder and when I click on folder windows prompts:
"the request could not be performed because of an i/o device error"
I tested my hard drive on several computers with windows xp and 7 and the problem didn't solved.
but when I use Mini windows on Hiren boot cd, there is no problem.
please guide me.
thank you

Microsoft recommends to shrink partitions. I have 2 partition an I re-sized them with acronis disk director in Hirens boot cd and problem solved.

friends i tried almost all possible ways to resolve I/O error on external 1TB WD drive but with no success… then what happened I just tried to format it with Windows 8.1 bootable CD, it didn’t format, but when I restart my windows it start appearing the win-explorer it tried to scan it with chkdsk but it was saying the drive is write protected, then followed below lines which removed the read only issue and it is working fine with me …. I thanks God.
