Hello. I have been trying to burn a file on my DVD writer, and I am keep getting an error. This error occurs to me for every DVD I try to burn. I really need to write this file on DVD, it is very urgent. I use windows 7 home premium. The image below shows my error. If anyone knows the solution, I will be very grateful.

Waiting for help.

I don’t think the problem here is with the CD burn application you are using since the error is input/output. If it is an input/output error, the issue is mainly related to the optical drive physically. But that doesn’t mean that your DVD writer is already broken. That’s not it.

You only need to check if the drive’s connection is intact because this is where the input/output error can be triggered. To check it, close any programs running and shutdown your computer. Unplug the CPU from the power outlet and open the CPU case. Check the cables connecting to the DVD drive.

Check the power supply cable attached at the back of the DVD drive because sometimes the plug of the power supply doesn’t fit very well to the power supply port of the drive. Also, try replacing the power supply with another available power supply cable. For the ribbon cable of the DVD drive, check both ends.

Make sure the other end of the ribbon cable connecting to the motherboard is attached properly. Once all cables are checked, plug the CPU again to the power outlet and start the computer. Open the DVD burn application and try a test burn to one of your blank DVD discs. If you still get an error, try downloading Alcohol 120% and replace your ImgBurn application.
