How do I fix error code 0x8000000a so I can open my pictures?

We just experienced this error code today while trying to transfer a few pictures from our hard drive to a zip drive.  Now when I go to open most of our photos I get this error message.  Help!!!  How can I fix this problem?  Your assistance is most appreciated.

Thanks

Hi 9289,

 

Since the pictures are still on your internal harddrive, you can try reformatting external harddrive and check.

You may try connecting the external drive to another PC to check if the device is working there. If so take a backup of the data and try formatting the drive.

Note: Before reformatting the drive take a backup of the data.

Hope this information is helpful.
