Cannot read ... Reached the end of the file. Help!

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to burn a 100 GB M-DISC (BDXL quad layer); I keep getting this error. For sure the file was not open at the time.

FWIW, the source is drive G: which is a Google Drive File stream drive.

But it wrote the first 36 GB just fine, and when I try to read the offending file, I can copy it just fine (tried copying to the desktop).

Advice?? (See screenshot at end of post.)

Here's the log:

My guess is if G: is a Google Drive of some kind, a network hiccup might have prevented reading the file contents properly.  Thus a premature EOF was reached, which was unexpected versus the file size the ImgBurn job was expecting and reported by the software.


I'm not familiar with Google Drives, but I'm guessing they're some kind of network/online/cloud source.  I would try copying the contents from the Google Drive to some temporary non network location, adding those files instead of the Google Drive source, and see if that helps.  However, this may not be practical, depending on the size of the source you're attempting to read from the Google Drive.

@dbminter Maybe, but EOF is not the same as a slow-responding storage device. There are plenty of devices that are just slow (not least optical drive readers).

Still, worth a try.
