Question about Computers & Internet
My laptop no longer reads disks. Error on screen says "The request could not be performed because of an I?O device error."
Check the status of the device in Device Manager to make sure that the device driver is working correctly. (If you need help doing that please ask.)
If no joy then:
Change the transfer mode for your CD drive in IDE Channel Properties loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); 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 1Note Primary IDE channel, device 0 is connected to your boot disk. This is the hard disk that typically contains your operating system.
