I am trying to transfer mp3 files from a folder on my desktop to my external hard drive.. Its a Seagate FreeAgent Go 320 GB.. it gets to about halfway through copying the folder of music and i get an error that says:

An unexpected error is preventing the operation. Make a not of this error code, which might be useful if you get additional help to resolve this problem:

Error 0x8007045D: The request could not be preformed because of an I/O device error.

It then lists the mp3 information and it says try again, skip, or cancel.
I tried to try again and skip but the same error just comes up again.

I am running on a Acer Intel Atom computer with a Windows Vista Home Basic operating system

Fixed here.
Goto computer properties | Advanced system settings | System protection tab.
Uncheck all drives, hit apply. This will turn of shadow copies and clear them.
Reenable the drives, hit apply. Since you just cleared them all you may also want to hit the create button to repopulate at least one.
Run the backup again.

I'll be taking this in to Microsoft to figure out root cause. Unknown right now.

Wow, good call. I've been backing up my Sony Vaio (running Vista) to a rotating set of external 500gig USB drives and it's been fine so far until the process failed twice in a row with two different 500gig drives. I even tried putting a blank disk in the external box and that also failed with the same error. Tried your steps above and it's working fine. Thanks!
