Common causes for I/O device errors

If Windows reports an I/O (input/output) device error , this means that the data carrier (hard drive, SSD, memory card, USB stick, CD/DVD) has malfunctions during the reading and/or writing access. I/O errors occur during the ongoing operating, while you work on a file or run a program.

The most common causes are:

  • defective sectors (bad blocks)
  • damaged write/read heads
  • faulty modules in the service area
  • File system error (under Linux)
  • damaged data cable
  • SATA or USB interface is damaged

Next steps after data loss induced by an I/O error

  • Don't apply power to the device anymore in order to prevent consequential damage and increase the chances of a successful data rescue.
  • Please tell us what kind of data carrier is affected (hrd drive, SSD, memory card, USB stick, CD/DVD), the exact model number or model name and caapcity of your data carrier.
  • We advise you on our diagnosis services and the data rescue process. For an express data rescue our staff is available all around the clock.
  • Take a look at our packaging tips so your device arrives at our clean room laboratories safely.

Der Ablauf funktionierte reibungslos und ganz einfach
2023-02-13: , WD Blue WD5000LPVX 500GB' | FAT

Das Angebot war preislich zwischen 900 und 1600 angesetzt, leider lag die Rechnung dann bei 1600. Hätte gehofft, dass es am unteren Preissegment liegt. Warum das dann so teuer wurde ist für einen Außenstehenden schwer nachzuvollziehen. Das ist der einzige Nachteil an dem Ganzen.
