Hi, I have a USB drive full of photos I would like to copy across to my computer. When I plug the drive in, my computer goes extremely slow for about 2 minutes until the drive is recognized. Once it has loaded, I go into the drive and copy a folder and it's sub-folders to my desktop. It calculates the time remaining for about a minute before producing the following error: "Error 0x8007045D The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error". I have tried using Windows utility to scan and fix any drive problems but it says there aren't any. Any help is much appreciated.
