Error 0x8007045D when trying to copy, delete or move files and folders on my USB key RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Dear Sirs,

    I have been having a terrible problem suddenly this week using my USB key. I get the error message "0x8007045D: the request could not be performed because of an I/O device error".

    This has nothing to do with back-up discs, and has happened now on both a Vista machine and a Windows 7 machine.

    I have tried removing my system restore points with no change. I also talked directly with a Microsoft support person who wanted to charge me £46 before asking me what the problem was!

    Hoping anyone can help with this!

    My machines are a Compaq Presario running windows Vista 32-bit, and a Toshiba Satellite laptop running Windows 7 64-bit
