overcoming input/output errors
I have a CD with pretty much irreplacible (but luckily not too vital) files. Somehow this CD got some kind of fungus or some sort of growth on it and is now completely unrecognizable as to CD to any computer (I've tried 3) or OS (I've tried 5). However, before it went completely null and void I dd'ed it into a file so I could mount it.
Now when I mount it ("mount -o loop my.file /my/dir") i can browse the directory structure and see which files are there. When I do an "ls -l" the file sizes all seem fine, but when I try to copy them I get an "Input/output error".
Does anyone have ideas on have to save these files so I can access them?
many, many thanks.
