I/O Error, Incorrect function


GhostShadow

Recommended Posts

1) I set a torrent on download and went to sleep when I returned it was already done.

2) I tried unRARing the files but it said that one of the RAR files was corrupted.

3) I Googled it wasnt fault of the torrent everybody else were doing fine.

4) I Googled the problem and somebody said that uTorrent would automatically check for hash errors.

5) I stopped the torrent. Moved the corrupted file away and clicked on the force recheck button.

6) "Files were missing from job"

7) So I moved the corrupted file back into the folder and Force Rechecked again.

8) It now says "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error"

9) Ripped my hair apart.

10) Stopped it. Restarted uTorrent and Force Checked it again.

11) "Incorrect Function"

12) I gave up and made a account here and posted this post.

What should I do now?

Thank You

(Please dont tell me to re-download the 7GB file. I was downloading it for 5d 8h at 17.1KB/s avg.)

Do a hard drive check for damage.

Sorry for the stupid question but how exactly do you do a hard disk check?

I am getting I/O device errors now as well and suspect my HD has an issue from dropping it recently.

Thanks

1) Goto My computer

2) Right click on the Hard Disk drive the corruption is in

3) Properties

4) Tools tab

5) "Check now" under "Error-checking"

6) Check both the boxes and hit "Start" in the dialog box

7) You might(or might not) have to restart the computer.

OR

If on Windows 7/Vista

Just Type "Error-checking" in the start menu then proceed from step 5

(I am on Windows XP so I cant help too much with 7 or Vista)

I ran the error-checking process in Windows which said it found errors and corrected them. However I still have the problem and am wondering if the problem will get worse? Or is fixable? Is there software to run to assess the health of the drive? Fix the drive?.... Should I just cut my loses and order a new one?

Edit:

Just ran some software from WD's website and these are the results:

Test Option: EXTENDED TEST

Model Number: WDC WD5000BEVT-22A0RT0

Firmware Number: 01.01A01

Capacity: 500.11 GB

SMART Status: PASS

Test Result: FAIL

Test Error Code: 08-Too many bad sectors detected.

Test Time: 15:29:59, August 26, 2012

Guess it's time for a new HD?
