External USB Hardrive Problem

  wetterfugal © 20:20 21 Jun 2005

The 160GB drive with 70GB free space works ok except for one folder containing about 20GB of Drama recorded in MP3 format.

All other folders work ok but I can't access this one. I get "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error" The input/output device is obviously the external USB hard drive.

I can't run any checks on it such as cleanup, error check or defrag. I run XP.

Any ideas?
