250 GB error message G:\ is not accessible

The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.

It used to show up on my computer as FAT32 (G) and now it is showing up as Local (G) and just freezed up.

Don't know what happened, did it get refomatted? Would it be possible to retrieve my files or are they gone for good? How can I change it back to
FAT32 (G)

Sounds like the Hard drive inside is nearing the end of its life. The best way to get your files off it is to remove the hard drive from the external case and install it directly into your computer tower (or get someone who is computer savy to do it).Once in your computer you have a much better chance of recovering your files and even fixing the drive for future use.

Detecting but unable to perform any action..


if you have a linux distribution at all (eg Ubuntu, Fedora) or download a linux distro and use a live version (which is smaller than full version and can be ran off a usb so switch your machine to boot to usb once distro is on there) then you should be able to see the hard drive on a linux distro all fine with all files still on there. Also another option is get a virtual box program and open linux from that and access your files in that virtual distro

I saw the message while copying even a single file from my external USB HD i-e "the request cannot be performed because of device I/O" and "digital delyed right failed" simultaneously...


Is the error occurring when reading "from" the W.D. drive,
or is the error occurring when writing "to" your internal drive?

> digital delyed right failed

Is that the exact spelling of the error-message?

Drive is not accessible. I/O Device Error


Method 1: Change the transfer mode for your CD drive in IDE Channel Properties
1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Manage.
2. Under Computer Management (Local), click Device Manager.
3. On the right side, expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers.
4. Right-click the channel where your CD drive is connected, and then click Properties. Typically, this channel is Secondary IDE Channel.
5. On the Advanced Settings tab, in the Transfer Mode box for the device that represents your CD drive, click PIO Only. Typically, this device is Device 0. Then, click OK.

If the issue is not resolved after you change the transfer mode for the secondary IDE channel device 0, your CD drive may not be located there. Use the same procedure to change the transfer mode back to DMA if available. Then, repeat these steps to change the transfer mode for IDE devices in the following order until the issue is resolved:
• Primary IDE channel, device 1
• Secondary IDE channel, device 1
Note Primary IDE channel, device 0 is connected to your boot disk. This is the hard disk that typically contains your operating system.

OR

Make sure that all cables are connected correctly
If you have another cable, try to use it. For USB devices, try to use another USB port. If it is internal dirve is there then Reseat it that means remove it and reinstal that
Then Set the BIOS as Default for that restart the system and before windows screen it gives the instructions how to boot in setup once you are in setup, on the bottom it says press F9 or F10 to set as default; different BIOS have different options so do the as the on screen instructons says.

OR

Try to access the media or device on another computer; try it on your friend or family computer
if it is not working contact your H/W Vendor
