Copying CDs w/ a Cyclic Redundancy Error

By tedcera

  1. I have an .AVI file on a CD which I am capable of watching from the CD.

    When I attempt to copy this .AVI file to my harddrive, I receive a "cyclic redundancy error."

    Is there any way to copy this .AVI file, without Windows trying to verify it?

    Is there a way to do it in the Command Prompt? or DOS?

    Please let me know.

    Use the "copy" command on command line. When encountering a read error, it will allow you to ignore the error and continue.

    You could also take a look at a program called IsoBuster - an advanced tool that is built for data recovery from CDs.
