My file stops copying from my CD to hard drive at 15%, how do I fix it so it fully copies to my disk? I tried copying it several times and still is stuck at only 15%.

What would I do to fix this error?

    Sounds like there's an issue with the CD. Have you got another computer you can try it on? – ben_re Jul 16 '17 at 15:16
  • How would I clean the CD drive lens and no my laptop does not have a DVD drive – RunyBEAR Jul 16 '17 at 20:49
  • @RunyBEAR If it stops at the same location on the disk, it is probably a file that cannot be read due to damage. Try copying in smaller chunks around the damage. Although If the damage is pervasive enough (a deep scratch across the entire radius), it may not be able to seek beyond it. – Damon Nov 6 '17 at 20:52
