Cant access files in hard drive

I hope you can help me with my problem. I currently have 2 500gb internal hard drives in a RAID 0 format: C drive is the main one and D drive is the secondary 'slave' one; the latter is used only for storing files, mostly media.
They are both ST3500820AS ATA and im using windows vista 64bit.

For some reason I can see my D Drive in My Computer, and go into it but I can only access certain folders; for others, it says theres a problem and cant access it.

I cant copy files cause it says Error 0x8007045D. The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.

Question is: physical or software problem? If software, I can just reformat and it will be fixed?

Sorry for the long post and thanks for any help!

That sounds like a chipset limitation problem. I am a bit confused about your raid 0. Even if there are 2 drives in raid 0, it should only show up as 1 drive on the OS or anything after post'ing.

It sounds to me that the "slave" drive is done using an ide cable. If thats the case, the only real advice i would give you is to upgrade.

There might be many cases when you are not able to access files like master boot record damaged. boot sector damaged. virus...

Have you tried some software for free evaluation? I would recommend you to try software which only takes dozens of bucks for you to access files. Find the solution here.
