I have a 320g Acomdata external hard drive, and when I try to copy my media into it, I get a error message that says "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error." How do I fix this?

Hi, welcome to TSF. :wave:

The error means that Windows can't communicate with the drive.
Try another cable and different USB ports.
If it still doesn't work - reinstall the motherboard's chipset drivers.

Ok well I tryed all of my other USB ports and still nothing. I only have the one cable that came with it. It worked before then it started saying that. Where do I find the motherboard's chipset drivers, to replace them?

I would get a new (USB2) cable.

The chipset driver should be on a CD you got with the computer/motherboard.

If you tell me what computer/motherboard you have I'll find a download for you.
