Default DVD burning problems

I am using NERO 6 and can make a DVD from files such as documents images and music. When I try to make a copy of a DVD it will only go as far as around 50 or 60% then it will display a message stating that he burning process failed due to a read error. It doesn’t seem to matter what kind of DVD im trying to make a copy even if its one I make from MP3’s it will never copy. I tried changing from ‘on the fly’ copying to making an ISO image first but still the same thing happens? I have no problem using Nero to make a copy of a CD. I have no idea what could be the problem unless my DVD reader, which is around 4 years old, isn’t up to the job. If anyone has any idea’s or suggestions about the problem that would be great.

Corsair TX550M ENTHUSIAST 550W
Intel B85, S 1150, DDR3, SATA III, PCIe 3.0 (x16), MATX MoBo

Hrm, are you using Nero because it came with the computer or the software along with the drive ? I would use DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter, which can be found on a google search or maybe download.com. I would try that, they also have encryption crackers that can break those "non-readable" errors. Try that and post how it works.

Most likely your copying a rented/borrowed dvd. If so you cannot just copy as there is copy protection built in. Dvd shrink/dvd decrypter will help you out.

You either need to get a faster hard drive or slow down your burning speed. (happened to me before - got a faster HD and no problems)
