Looks like a bad sector in the HDD is causing this problem. Can you try doing a chkdsk /f , or better use spinrite and do a level5 diag, to rectify this prob, and then retry the backup?

Also could you try a ntbackup to a network drive, and the maybe you could copy it over to a dvd. just a thought.
