Having an issue with my usb hard drive. In my main music file, if I try to add (transfer) a song, I get
'error copying file - the request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.'
BUT - I can add the song to any other folder I have on the drive. This is something new.

Not to confuse things, but another file dad a different problem. The file was empty, but the error I got, when I tried to delete it - Cannot remove folder ... the directory is not empty.

It's the same issue on two computers I've plugged the drive into. No errors in DevMgr. Using XP on both.
Is it a drive issue? Software?

Any ideas? Thanks!

Could it be a corrupted file, since it is only happening in one, in the folder?
In fact, I can add songs to other song folders in the same folder. So it must be the file.
It's a 12G file, and I'll try transferring to another file.

I marked this solved. It's not, but there are other issues I'm looking into. I'll restart it if needed.
Thanks!
