    I have an External Hard Drive (250GB) from America. The problem I am having is that I cannot access the My Videos folder (I could a few days ago). I keep getting the following message :
    k:\My Videos is not accessible

    The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error

    Try renaming the folder.
