I am trying to access some very old CD's I have (8+ years)

When inserting into my current OS (Windows 7) I can see the files, and I can also browse the folders.

The problem starts when I want to copy the files, or even create an ISO of the CD.

Using regular Copy - I get the error: "Can’t Read From the Source File or Disk"

When using TeraCopy - I get several errors: enter image description here

Any idea how to solve/check what I can do ?

Is there a way to overcome bad sectors on CD's?

This happens with 2 CD's already, and I am tested my CD/DVD reader - it's working fine.


You could try Roadkil's Unstoppable Copier, which attempts to copy every sector on a CD and skips over the bad ones.
