Can view CD cannot copy from it
I have a CD with my backup on it, actually I have 160 CD's with data on them.
The directories and files are all listed, they have a file size and everything looks great, until I try to copy a file from the cd, then I get an i/o error.
The CD was created on a MDK9.2 Linux system, he data was cop-ied from a samba share on a mdk 9.2 server.
I've tried reading the CD's in several drives, the original CDRW burner, a client station DVD/CD drive at the workplace, my DVD/RW, my CDRW and My laptop CD Drive.
I tried reading the CD under MDK Linux 9.2 and 10 and Windows 98 and Windows XP.
I have extracted the image using dd (dd if=/dev/cdrom of=damncd.hell)
I can mount the image with loop, but I still can't copy files out of it.
I was able to copy files out of one of the directories, but not the others. It really seems like a permission thing, but I've tried as root to no avail.
I've even used: cat damnedcd.hell > pleasework.img
chmod -Rf 0777 pleasework.img
nothing... actually same as before.
I can open the image file in a text editor, but the file formats are lotus123, so they are not recognizable to my untrained human eye.
Please help me.......
