    So what do you suggest? You can see from the logs that the device
    is having difficulty reading your damaged CD. You can do what
    Windows-95 does (ignore the errors and pretend everything is fine),
    or what Windows-98 and Windows-2000/Prof does (blue-screen, and re-boot),
    or you can try like hell to read the files like Linux does. What do you
    suggest?

    Cheers,

    Windows-2000/Professional isn't.
