    Hi all, just helping someone in a forum I go to.

    Any info/help would be appreciated.

    This is my only problem with vista ultimate x64 so far after about 2 weeks

    the entire time, my 320 gig hard drive and vista dont dance well together,
    quite often i get a "0x8007045D: The request could not be performed because
    of an I/O device error." error. the only way i can use that drive again is
    by restarting, it wont do anything else on the drive until its restarted

    I never had a problem with the hard drive in windows xp, just to make a
    note.

    my specs are:

    OS: Vista Ultimate X64
    CPU: AMD 64 3800+ Dual Core
    Motherboard: ASUS M2N-Sli Deluxe
    RAM: 2x512mb Corsair DDR2 800mhz
    Video Card: XFX Nvidia Geforce 8800GTS 320mb
    DVD: 1x Light Scribe ASUS DVD Burner SATA
    Hard Drive: 1x 160Gig Western Digital Partitioned into two 80s SATA
    Hard Drive: 1x 320Gig Western Digital SATA

    after reading around a bit might it be the hard drive its self? hopefully
    not.

    Another reply was:

    didnt help at all, thanks for trying, already had system restore turned off,
    and it only happens on one drive, extremely frustrating, just did wd
    diagnosis and came up with nothing.

    And:

    the drive works 100% fine in safe mode i moved around 120 gigs of data and
    no problems, but in normal mode it goes all weird with i/o errors!

    I note that Daemon tools is also installed.

    Cheers

  2. Why don't you just direct the person to this forum?

    They can access this newsgroup using Windows Mail or whatever newsreader
    they use and the MS news server, news.microsoft.com. Windows Mail is
    already set up for access through Microsoft Communities.

    Or use the Web interface though that is awful.
