    Mine worked for about three months, now whenever I try to acces the forth partition on the drive it says "P:/ Is not accessible. The request could not be performed because of as I/O device error" The other four partitions work fine

One thing to remember is the some of the Simple drives requires the USB mini to conect to the drive and the TWO USB connects to be plugin to the computer.

Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked. I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.
