I do this my making disk images(.iso) from the dvds. To do this I use disk utility > new image > save as dvd/cd master. Started with some Battlestar Galactica. First 6 disks of season 1 went fine. Next 3 disks of season 2 went fine. First disk of season 2.5 I get an input/output error about 75% through the process. Any ideas? mac dvd disk-utility share|improve this question asked Sep 4 '09 at 12:10 CT. 1,444164062 add a comment| 2 Answers 2 active oldest votes up vote 1 down vote accepted I think the issue is with your disk. If you have access to a spin doctor I would suggest that. Since your trying to get it as an iso, MacTheRipper and Handbrake will not do this. You could try http://www.xilisoft.com/dvd-copy-mac.html . You could also dd from the comand line. But this may be what disk utility already uses to create cd/dvd master copies. Just google this for syntax. share|improve this answer answered Sep 15 '09 at 12:55 calvin123 262 add a comment| up vote 1 down vote This could be a problem with the drive, or (more likely) a problem with the DVD. Perhaps there's a scratch on it, or maybe just a smudge. It's tough to say. If you copy the files directly, you can still play it with VLC.

The long and short of it is this. Whenever I try to burn something on my DVD, it fails at the end and gives me an 'input/output' error and ejects the DVD. I have no idea why this happens. I should note that my DVD drive is fine otherwise, it can play DVDs and CDs without any problem. If anyone needs any additional information, I http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/input-output-error-when-burning-dvds.177467/ even saved the log-file that the my DVD burning software saved after it was finished. Can anyone lend a hand? Thanks in advance. Feb 12, 2012 #1 Cerf TS Rookie Posts: 23 What software are you using? Try CDBurnerXP, it's free. Also, try a different manufacturers DVD's. And you could look for a firmware update for the drive. Feb 12, 2012 #2 Rabbit01 TS Evangelist Posts: 777 +57 Rather than burn at the default speed, you can also try to burn at a lower speed.

I've tried multiple softwares, from Windows Explorer (Most recent) to nero, to various free software, they all had similar results. I should mentioned that I burned a ton of DVDs before the problem set in. I even tried originally to use Windows explorer to format my DVD to work as a flash disk, but it didn't work at all. I did not try a different brand of DVDs yet, since at that time I still had plenty of DVDs left over, now with my attempts to fix the problem..

If you've ever installed OS X, wiped a hard drive clean, or needed to re-format a USB stick, there's a good chance that you'll be familiar with the app. Whilst managing disk images input output is undoubtedly Disk Utility's forté, it can also be used to good effect for creating images. This how-to will walk you through how simple this process is. We'll illustrate how to create a simple disk image for storing files, a few of the uses that images can have, and also investigate how images can be encrypted to keep your files secure. Creating a New Image input output error When opening Disk Utility (found in the Applications > Utilities folder), you'll be presented with a screen which looks similar to the following: Disk Utility Don't be intimidated by the impressive technical jargon - what we're going to do is very straight forward! Disk Utility has the ability to perform all manner of complex operations on a hard drive, but today we're only concerned with one button on the toolbar: ‘New Image'. Clicking ‘New Image' will bring up a dialog with several different options - essentially the recipe for what will be included in the new storage space we're creating: Creating a new image At first glance this can seem a little confusing. Here is a simple explanation of how to handle each different option: Volume Name: This is simply the name which will be given to the image when mounted Volume Size: A disk image needs to be a specific size. A range of popular values (e.g. for a CD or DVD) are already available to choose, or you can enter a custom size. Volume Format: If you have a specific format requirement, feel free to change this - otherwise leave it
