My dad is out of town for a while, so I've been using his computer to rip my DVDs with Handbrake. He has Windows Vista installed, so I did a full installation of Fedora 13 on a thumb drive and just run everything off of that. However, when I went to delete some of the encoded videos after I had moved them to my computer, I got a system error that said 'can't delete files: I/O error.' Now, if I try to boot up Windows, his computer is stuck on a black screen checking a bunch of dlls. He'll be back in a couple of weeks, so I'd like to have it fixed by then.
I have new external usb drive which I'm trying to format to NTFS so I can also use in in windows. I've set it up using fdisk
Disk /dev/sdd: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0x604a2a7d
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdd1 1 60801 488384001 7 HPFS/NTFS
And tried formatting using mkfs -t ntfs /dev/sdd1
However I get the following error Cluster size has been automatically set to 4096 bytes. Initializing device with zeroes: 100% - Done. Creating NTFS volume structures. Error writing to /dev/sdd1: Input/output error. Error writing non-resident attribute value. add_attr_sd failed: Input/output error Couldn't create root directory: Input/output error
I'm either missing the obvious or have four identically defective tape drives. Each is a Seagate or IBM Travan drive (yes, I know they're old and I need to access the data; they were in Win boxes) using QIC-80/DC-2120 media. I've been trying to solve this using three Fedora boxes (different versions) and one Debian machine.
The OS's recognize the drives and they show up as /dev/st0.
With no media in the drives, I get a status report; with media inserted, I get the same input/output errors.
Examples (all as root):
With tape inserted:
With no tape in drive:
With tape inserted
Everything I've found on Google suggests that the drives are defective.
I'm trying to install Wine on Fedora 13, I tried installing it from the "Add/Remove Software Repository" but the installation fails, I tried installing it from the Terminal using the following command as root: "yum install wine"
I booted my Fedora 13 live CD on my Dell server, and configured networking and SSHd. On my desktop I logged into the live cd and started copying over a big file (1.5 GB) (i.e. copying from the desktop computer to the server). After copying about half the fil, the download fails with an error message about the filesystem being read-only.I've seen this exact same behavior on both i386 and x86_64 of the same live CD, but don't know why it's happening. I've also had the same issue when copying small files. In /var/log/messages these messages are repeated many times:
Code: Dec 20 12:32:23 localhost kernel: Buffer I/O error on device dm-0, logical block 684075 Dec 20 12:32:23 localhost kernel: lost page write due to I/O error on dm-0
I have a strange issue with my RAID5 array - it worked fine for a month, a couple days ago it didn't start on boot with mdadm reporting "Input/Output error" - I didn't panic restarted my computer, same error. Then opened a Disk utility and it reported State: Not running, partially assembled - don't know why, I've pressed Stop RAID Array and started it again, voila - it reported State: Running - I've checked components list and there was nothing wrong with it. So I run Check Array utility, waited almost 3 hours to finish it and it worked since than, till today's morning - I've started my computer, and here we go, same error.
This is an initial state just after computer startup:
This is after I stop and start RAID5:
This is a components list:
I can see nothing wrong there yet not sure why mdadm fails on boot. I do not really like the windows solution I guess, when I check my array again, it will work fine again, but it then can fail in the same way without known reason.

We are running an C++ application in AWS EC2 instance (CentOS 5.4) mounted with an EBS Volume (say /mymountpoint). We do more simultaneous writes to the EBS Volume from our application. But at some point we get 'ERROR: Input/output error'. After this, 'ls -l /mymountpoint' command itself fails with the i/o error. The filesystem which we use for the EBS Volume is xfs. I unmounted the drive and done xfs_check and again mounted the drive. Now, everything seems to be working fine. But the issue still persists everytime when we do simultaneous writes.
I believe the following details will be useful, [root@domU-12-31-39-07-81-36 StoreGrid]# cat /etc/redhat-release CentOS release 5.4 (Final) .....

I use the growisofs command from the terminal to do most of my burning. Mostly because i burn almost the exact same type of file every time so its pretty easy to set up. I've done this dozens of times and never once had a problem before. I loved it because it was so much simpler than doing this in windows where i would need to install a few extra programs and codecs. That was up until today where it started failing every single time i tried to burn something.
For some reason every time i try to burn a disc it gives me this error message:
I'm really at a loss as to why this is happening. Every thread i found that discussed this problem was mostly focused on k3b or brasero and never really answered the question. As far as i know nothing has been updated since the last time i burned a disc a few days ago. Everything is exactly the same as it was when it worked. The only thing i could think of that might have caused this sudden failure is that i flashed the firmware of another cd drive using the same sata port that this drive is currently plugged into, but that was in windows so i dont see how it could have affected this drive.
I'm trying to install ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop. I would like to erase my old xp completely and have only ubuntu as my OS. I boot from cd but when I install it stops at 15% and keeps giving me this error:
Input/output error during write on /dev/sda.
It won't let me retry or ignore and when I cancel the installation continues until I get another error.
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 two days ago and was using my 1tb passport external HDD with it to download and store files. However today whenever i try and copy/cut and past to the HDD i get this error message..
Error opening file '/media/My Passport/test.avi': Input/output error This is obviously very fustrating and i want to stay with Linux but i do need to fix this problem else im afraid im going to have to back to awful windows.
I'm having some trouble installing Ubuntu 10.04. What I am trying to do is completely wipe all things on my computer and install Ubuntu. I have followed the instructions from Ubuntu's homepage on how to download the ISO, and ran their program to put it onto a portable USB device. Through doing all of this, I receive no error messages. Then it tells me to change the BIOS to boot from USB, so I did that. I've successfully accessed the install menu and filled in all the information requested (i.e. computer name, account name, etc.). I select that I want to delete the current partitions and use only Ubuntu. It starts to install, but at 67%, while copying files, I receive an error.
This error is: The installer encountered an error copying files to the hard disk: [Errno 5] Input/output error This is often due to a faulty CD/DVD disk or drive, or a faulty hard disk. It may help to clean the CD/DVD, to burn the CD/DVD at a lower speed, to clean the CD/DVD drive lens (cleaning kits are often available from electronics suppliers), to check whether the hard disk is old and in need of replacement, or to move the system to a cooler environment.
I just received a 1TB external(Western Digital) hard drive(NTFS) for backup purposes. I'm using an Ubuntu Live CD, and an external hard drive dock. I am transferring over esata and am receiving the error:
Cannot open file: input/output error
Seems strange that it said "open". At any rate only about 60 of the 200+ GB were able to be transferred over...this won't do. I have tried to copy via CLI using
and received the same issue. For clarification I am attempting to transfer from a mounted partition onto the mounted external.
I have a WD external disk, NTFS file system. I mounted it on my Red Hat. While on the external disk, I deleted a directory, which was sent to .Trash-root of that disk.I went to .Trash-root and did rm -rf to completely delete that directory, but I got the following error: cannot remove `<directory>': Input/output errorWhen I do ls -la on that directory that I wish to remove, it shows me it has 0 files inside. But not only I can't remove it, I can't do anything else with it (copy, etc). And I have all the rights on that directory, so this isn't the problem.
I'm having an issue using MPD currently, using sonata as the front end. Quick specs are as follows:
Code: Fedora 13 x64 - Linux ltp01 126.96.36.199-68.fc13.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Feb 17 15:03:58 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux MPD version - mpd (MPD: Music Player Daemon) 0.15.11 Here is my mpd.conf file contents: Code: # An example configuration file for MPD # See the mpd.conf man page for a more detailed description of each parameter.
I googled my issue, and didn't come up with much to help me. Any advice on this? It's not a completely pressing issue, but I would like to know what is going on and how I can fix this, since I never messed with MPD before in my life.
I've been using grsync to backup my home directory to an external drive (connected via USB), but lately I've been getting errors very early in the process and I was hoping someone might be able to help me fix them (or at least understand what I'm doing wrong).
