I/O device error


Two of the most common causes of I/O (Input / Output) device errors are driver based. Typically, either the device's driver is not enabled or it is out of date. The driver component has an important function, as it acts as a motor like force that propels USB/plug-and-play hardware into a driving action within the computer. It is the connecting communicating link signaling the CPU to a desired movement. And while not all I/O device error solutions are simplistic, as a good starting point, you can try troubleshooting using a few basic steps, and you might not need to attempt anything else.
Access "Control Panel" from the Start menu and then choose "Performance and Maintenance." Click "System" and then go to the Hardware tab and click on "Device Manager." Find the device that is registering an error by expanding the nodes of the appropriate category. If the device has a red "X" on the icon next to its description, the hardware is disabled; Otherwise, Go to the General tab and click "Enable Device" found under the Device Status section; then press "OK." (Note: You may have to follow prompts, as indicated through an enabling device wizard. If you do, continue to click "Next" and follow the prompts until the process has completed.) Test the hardware. If an error is shown. Go to the General tab and click "Troubleshoot" found under the Device Status section then press "OK." Follow the prompts to solve the issue. If an error is still shown Go to the Driver tab and click "Update Driver." Follow the prompts until the process has completed and then test the hardware. Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html Windows XP/Vista/7/8
it might take some time being a freeware driver solution Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

im getting an unknown error (1611) when i try to restore my iphone. i have latest itunes & windows 7


Hi there,

This error may indicate a hardware issue with your device. If the MAC address or the IMEI is the default value (00 499901 064000 0), this can also confirm a hardware issue, to find these go to settings, general & about.

If you can get an appointment in an Apple store they can try a "known good" network connection & connector and try to restore the phone for you but if not it looks like it may be a hardware issue within the phone. If your still withing your warrenty give Apple a ring they'll sort it for you.

When I try to restore my Ipod Nano Itunes wont let me.it says on the Ipod corrupted restore via Itunes I follow the instuctions but it wont restore.


If itunes is prompting you to restore the ipod but it will not there might be something blocking it on your Computer

The best test is to try to restore from another cpu with itunes

- if it restores then you can take it back to your cpu and re-sync the muisc

- if you get the same error or issue with another cpu

Then is is probably an issue with the hard ware of your ipod

You might want to take it to the apple store or best buy to test

Good luck
