I keep getting an I/O Error anytime I try to burn something

Recommended Posts

I never used to have a problem but now all of a sudden, I get this pop up window. Any help would be appreciated.

And previously you have used the same burner on the same PC? Are you burning to the same brand and same type of blank disc? Is it CD or DVD?

It would be helpful to include a log.

Yes, I generally have a go to reply for various errors, but I need to see a Log first in order to see if it could be the case and before continuing.

Yes. I'm using the same burner and types of CD. Nothing as changed, except for system updates. Maybe that changed something with the CD burner? I usually burn at 8x because I'm burning old game discs. Never had a problem at that speed until now. After getting this error, I tried burning at 10x but the same error happened. I don't want to burn higher than that as the consoles won't be able to read the discs.

Here's the log.

System updates generally don't bork optical disc burners.  Failed backups are usually the fault of either using cheap media or the drive itself.  You're not using cheap media, as I initially thought, so that's not the cause.  Therefore, the problem is most likely the drive.  You say you've used it fine for a while and haven't changed media.  So, I would say the drive probably needs replacing.  And, yes, drives need replacing even after only a few months.  Sometimes it's 3, sometimes 7, sometimes 9, sometimes a year.  The longest I ever had a drive last was 2 and a half years, back when Pioneer made a high quality product, which they don't anymore.

 

So, how long have you been burning with this drive?

I wonder when the discs were manufactured?
Maybe they’ve deteriorated and the drive can’t reliably burn them now.

You could try enabling the ‘perform opc before write’ option in the settings and see if that makes a difference.
