Have IIe and a Vulcan power supply/hard drive

I try to backup the Vulcan to 800k floppies

At the end of floppy one message says
"write error" and backup stops
the floppy is full but process does not move on

It does not say "please insert next floppy"

how can I fix this?

Did you just make the one attempt or did you try a second time?
If so did you use the same floppies?
