I/O ERROR - Failed to Write Sectors 0 - 31 - Reason: Write Error (etc...)

Recommended Posts

Hi people,

 

Hope everybody is well, and i apologize if this Topic isn't in the correct place! I've been burning DVD's for ages but all of a sudden my DVD Flick/imgburn isn't working, and i was hoping some of you may be able to help me! I'm ok with computers and have had a problem a while back which i managed to sort by looking on this site and downloading CCleaner, but i just can't seem to work this one out! I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling DVD flick a few times, even trying a previous version which was advised on another topic but still no luck.

 

I have always used the same discs - 4.7GB 120min Grade A+ MULTISPEED Tuffdisc, and everything has worked perfectly, but no matter what i try and burn to disc now, i keep on getting this same error message!

 

OK, the text i get is as follows:

Says in the log "Speeds: 2x", but somehow you're able to attempt a burn at 4x? Possible you have a few bad disks.

 

Also try the latest ImgBurn 2.5.7.0

I appreciate the compliment, but I'm just repeating Lightning UK's troubleshooting process. I'm glad you got it sorted.
