Hard Drive I/O Error - software related?

Here's a strange ?software? / ?hardware? problem.

I'm running Fedora2 on a 10 gig HD with a second 160G as a data drive. I have several folders on the data drive with R/W/E for anyone (public folders for a file server).

I can copy files to the data drive, but I am unable to copy, create, rename or delete folders. I can copy, create and delete individual files.

Whenever I try to do any folder modification I get the message:

"Device I/O Error"

Any ideas on this one?
