Error 0x8007045D: the request could not be performed because of an I/O device error
is the error i keep getting???
When i get this error popping up is when, I'm copying a 881 MB file to the desk top from my Western Digital 750GB external hard drive via USB, when it's 90-95% done!!!
Then it does one of the following:
1- stalls and the screen goes blank and i have to restart most of the time.
2- if i try to cancel the screen freezes then i bring up the task manager and try to quite the application and it still does nothing.
2- if i let run it's course then like i said the screen goes blank till i disconnect the External Hard Drive the windows goes back to normal.
I tried deleting the restore points in the c:/drive but it keeps popping up,
I have a dell inspiron 6000 laptop
Windows 7 Ultimate
Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 1.73GHz
Ram 1 GB
System type 32 bit
80GB Hard Drive
