I/O Device Error

Been trying to backup video files from DVDs to my hard drive.

Trying to backup with software known as 'DVD Shrink 3.2' However, I've been receiving the following message:

'Failed to read file "E:\". The request could not be performed because of a I/O device error'

What does this mean and what is the remedy?
