Are you copying Games CDs?

Are you copying Games CDs?

If so,

1) Its probably the Copy Protection stopping you.

2) This sort of thing is not to be discussed here.

If not,

then can you fully explain what you are copying, how and what spec your PC is??

Your opening words are: "everytime a (I) try to copy any discs (disks)".....

You use the word "any".

Open Device Manager, highlight your drive and check for any exclamation marks.

Then, with the drive still highlighted, click on Properties.

You can now check that your drive is in order via the three tabs.

Remember the old saying that you can't kid a kid whose kidded thousands.
