    Suggestions

    Probably there's a reason of this error: the file is REALLY damaged.

    First you should check the validity of your CD-Rom disc... to do this you should run in a shell: "md5sum /dev/hdc" (assuming /dev/hdc the device wich rappresent you CD-ROM drive). The command will calculate the MD5 sum of disc data inserted in your drive.
    If this program will output I/O errors, the disc is really damaged, so you can't copy some data present on the disc; otherwise it will output a long alphanumeric number and the disc is not damaged.

    Another chance is that maybe DAT files that you want copy on harddisc are protected with some strange mechanism (I've never encountered such discs)...

    P.S.: the CD-Rom disc is a VCD/SVCD (Super/Video CD)? If it's like that you can't copy your DAT files (because they are threaded in the same way of CD-Audio). In this case you should use a program that extract video data from the (S)VCD (mencoder is a good program to do it: see http://www.mplayerhq.hu).

    Let me know!
