IO ERROR Every time I try to make an initial hard drive backup image with Perfect Image Professional, I get an IO Error on the 3rd disk and have to abort. I now have a trash can full of used-up DVDR disks, and have wasted several days trying to get my new software to work!!!!!! HELP.

First and foremost backup your data if possible. Then if you have bad sectors on the hard drive you might try and run hdd regen. it is free and can get it from HIRAN'S BOOT CD 15.2. IT HAS SAVED MY TAIL MANY TIMES OVER.

Just bough this hard drive, and when I plugged it in, drivers were installed but it was not recognized by the computer. Tried to initialize it through disk management (windows), but got a cyclic redundancy...

If you just bought this drive, I would suggest to return it to the store and ask for a replacement. Don't forget to bring in your receipt of the store, when you bought it.

Every time I connect my Buffalo Hard disk (HD-PE320U2) and try copying data it shows IO device error. I don't know what to do! help me. Formatting did not help!!!!

That error signals the fact that the motherboard can't communicate properly with the controller of the disk. It's a hardware fault and it's unfixable - this disk is dead, replace it.

This means that you should try to copy all the pictures from the device onto your computer's disk-drive, while you still can!

Or, select a bunch of images, and burn them to CD/DVD-writable disks. Select another bunch, and repeat.

Backup hard drive to an external hard drive

"what the error actually says is, you have either run out of space, or the backup file (.bkf) is too large for this disk. note: if the disk is formatted with FAT32, the maximum possible size for the backup file is limited to 4 gigs."

That error means that the FAT32 file system only allows 4GB files or smaller to be transfered. The chance that the backup file (.bkf) is larger than 4GB suggests that this file is causing your problems. You could try manually copying around that file (selecting all files from that folder except the large one) and see if that works.

Usually you will get many errors copying a drive directly as system files will be inaccessible and whatnot. Your best bet is to limit your copying to "C:\Program Files\" and "C:\Documents and Settings\", assuming you have Windows.
