I have an issue. I am able to backup my Dvd's with no problems at all, I can play the backup dvd's with no problems. The only problem that I am having is that I now continue to keep getting the message "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error" whenever I try copying from the DVD (the backup DVD) on to my Hard drive. I get this message every single time. I am using the Plextor 712A dvd burner and I have upgraded to the latest firmware which is 1.05. I am running XP Home and I have downloaded all of the latest updates. I can not figure out for the life of me what is causing this error. I have even tried changing my Plextor to the Primary Master and placed my Samsung 52X as the Primary Slave.. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks .
