I/O error while backing up


I'm trying to back up my MacBook hard drive to an external drive via SuperDuper! but it fails to copy everytime, saying it's unable to copy a certain file (which is different every time).

I searched this support forum for a solution and decided do "zero" the external hard drive, without success.

I asked help in another Mac forum and I realised my partition scheme wasn't "GUID_partition_scheme" so I fixed that and tried again... and I'm still unable to complete a backup.

So I'm back here, aking directly for help this time

Is there a way to know if it's a hardware problem?

Me external hard drive is a 250 GB Seagate in a NexStar3 USB/FW enclosure. I used the Firewire interface to backup.
