Input/Output errors on files
I turned on my Slack 9 box this morning after being away from home for three months (was performing Shakespeare). I connect to the box via SSH (using PuTTY from an XP machine). I tried to "ls" one of my mp3 directories and I received many files with the following: "/bin/ls: File.mp3: Input/output error" These files, I assume, are the problem behind me not being able to access that directory via Samba (using Explorer to transfer files), while all the other directories work fine.
I have tried to rm the offending files, but to no avail; I get the same i/o error, and it drops me back to the prompt. A search here at LQ didn't yield anything regarding individual files (mainly CD-ROM mounting), but I'm hoping someone out there knows the answer!
