You need to pin point which files/folders are not copying. It is almost certainly permissions. There are probably some folders or files that have dropped permissions. This will not be a problem if you can find them! If you can you need to take ownership of the files/folders. I am almost certian this is the problem well at least see if there are folders you cant access and that will give it away.
this is what to do, right click the files, click properties, security, advanced, your user name, edit, select your user name again and click edit, tick full control and OK out of everything.

I keep getting the same error as above when I try to access my files. It seems to be getting worse and locks me out of more and more folders. I've tried to change the permissions on some of the folders but the only option that appears under Groups or Users is "Everyone". I've tried adding my username: Christy (CHRISTY-PC\Home) or the Administrators (CHRISTY-PC\Administrators) but neither seems to work. I'm afraid I'm in over my head. Can anyone help?

Are these long name padlocked folders or do you mean you can't access any folder?

Iv had my Seagate External hard drive for over a year now, it was working fine until recently.
Whenever I try to copy files to it I always get an error:
"Error 0x8007045D: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error."
I have full control on all the files. What will happen most of the time is that ill be able to copy 1 or 2 files across but when it comes to the 3rd file it stops copying and the speed keeps decreasing until it shows the above error.
Iv downloaded "SeaTools for Windows" but that didn't help
Iv even formatted it but still nothing helps.

Error 0x8007045D (The request could not be performed because of an i/o device error) is my problem too.
I'm not sure if this is the right place to post or not. I'm having the same issue as ChristyG. I have an iOmega ScreenPlay HD 500GB external hard drive Model # SPMCAHD that will now only show the first page of folders and will not let me in any further. I have about 30gb of info on there (mostly pictures of course) that I need to recover.
I was able to view a bunch of pictures on my tv thru the hdmi connection but it seems to be locking me out of seeing them that way too. The local computer guys I took it to did a few things but came up empty. The issue is with the hard drive as I have tried connecting it to other computers and used different cables. Am I correct in hoping that the files are intact but accessibiltiy is the problem? Any suggestions?
