I am trying to copy files from a DVD disc (some 3 GB of data) using the CD-ROM
 on this laptop. The transfer speed is EXTREMELY LOW! It starts with almost 3.5
 MB/sec at first, but then after 10 seconds or so, it gets down to 500 KB/sec!
 The transfer was going to take approximately 6 hours, which is a lot for a
 laptop with specs like mine.

 I tried to copy the same DVD to another
 laptop, which had much lower specs than my MSI, the approximated time was 10

 I tried to update CD-ROM but it told me that it was up to

My computer specs:

Name: MSI WorkStation Series GT60 2OKWS-674US

 OS: Windows 7 Professional
 64 bit

 CPU: 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7-4800MQ

 Hard drive: 1 TB 7200
 RPM, 128 GB Solid-State Drive

 Graphics: NVIDIA Quadro K3100 with 4 GB

 Hard disk description: SATA

 Optical Storage Device: BD

 Cache Memory installed size: 6.0

I tried many solutions searched on Google, but none of them worked! One of them was to disable "Remote Differential Compression" but it did not work at all. I tried to use 3rd party programs such as Teracopy but no improvement.

Please help guys as i'm desperate and this problem is getting on my nerves.

I noticed that the copying speed is ok until this error is encountered (attached)

after I click "Skip" the speed reduces dramatically to about 300kb/s and never changed

The disc quality bad, so the CD-ROM can't normal read data.

Same problem with all optical media? If yes, bad ODD. -> RMA
If it's just the one disc, it's a problem with the disc in the specific ODD. -> Get another copy of the disc
