I/O device error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I get a I/O device error on one of my disks when trying to write to it. The disk is in perfect shape when running XP, but i discovered it when i installed build 5728.This was not an issue for me with previous builds.

    Does anyone have a clue what may cause this?

  • The disk is a Maxtor 120gb ATA/IDE, not S-ATA. It is connected as slave on IDE 2. File system is NTFS.

    It has no problem what so ever when running in XP, but in Vista it wont let me write to it, becasue it says its full, and it is a I/O device error.
