Thank you jhayz.
The model is an Asus K52JR, i5, 4GB RAM, 2.27GHz. The sofware I used for backup is: NTI Backup Now EZ. Though I also want it to work trough simple copy-paste, which gives the specific error.
I have checked the link, I tried to change the IDE channel. However, when I'm in the device manager I need to get to the advanced settings of IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. I don't have that tab. Looked it up on the internet, but the offered solutions (deleting Intel Application Accelerator or Intel Matrix Storage Manager) did not work for me, because I don't have those programs. Besides that, the only IDE adaptor that shows up is: Intel 5 Series 4 Port SATA AHCI Controller. Wouldn't that be the system disk (as spoken of in the link)? Because that's the only one that showes up, it makes no difference when I plug in the HD.Update:
Recently did a chkdsk on my C drive, so I tried to back it up trough Windows. It failed, however it did deliver me an extra error code: 0x8078012D. Also an I/O error. I'll be searching the web again.
