Ok here is the thing I have a bunch of pictures on cds from my wedding and what not but for some reason when I try to do anything with one of them this is what I get. Can someone tell me what it means and how to fix it I can't even e-mail these pictures either.

Thanks rebelz1



Ok I just looked at the screen shot and I can't read so here is what it says!

That doesn't sound too good, to me, that sounds like there may be a few scratches on the disk, I think you should clean the cd, but before that, Try copying the photos to your desktop or a different location first.

if that fails, do this
[quote name='http://www.instructables.com/id/SSHVSZZF5Y3L0Y1/']First, the materials you will need:

anti static cloth (if possible)
CD cleaner (optional)
water

If it's not possible to get an anti static cloth a fine cloth or very fine tissue will do.

The method starts with putting your liquid of choice (cleaning fluid or water) on your cloth.IMPORTANT!!!DO NOT SPRAY LIQUID ON THE CD!!!

Next, you will need to wipe the CD in an outward pattern. NOT IN CIRCLES. Wipe from in to out until the CD is dry and clean.

Hopefully this instructable will help you clean your damaged CDs.[/quote]
If cleaning your CD doesn't help then you may not be able to get the wedding photos back

You can't copy just one file, or a whole CD is affected?

To stupidhomer,
The Cd is spotless you can not see any scratches or dirt or anything on it, but I went ahead and cleaned it just in case and still no help. And I have also tried to save them to the desktop, my pictures and a few other places with the same result everytime.



To Broni,
Nope it's the whole CD. I have tried the first file, skipped around from file to file, the whloe CD at once and it will do about half the pics on there then it gives me that message and all the ones that it copied disapear after I click ok.


I have now tried it on 3 different computers with nothing.

It sounds like they might not have burnt properly and something like the file system corrupted on the disk, so you may not be able to get the wedding photos off of it.

cyclic redundancy check error, usually means physical problem with the disk, so it may look fine on the surface and still be bad.
Try Copy It Anyway: http://copy-it-anywa...former.com/2.4/
After copying, you MAY be able to read some files.
