Recover a video cd

This has probably been discussed many times over, but i wanted to know how do i get data from a CD with bad sectors, since it is a video i dont care about the bad bloacks, i just want whatever is readable, i tried using DD, with noerror but it did not work, any better idea, it would be better if fast, i dont need any recovery of bad blocks, so the topic title technically is wrong, i just need to read whatever is there, but fast.

IsoBuster is a MS Windows program, but there is a way to get it to work with linux. Someone wrote some special program just for isobuster to work with linux. You'll need to do some googling, but isobuster will recover what is recoverable from optical media.
