My windows 2000 CD has an actual CRACK in it. I was having problems getting it to read but I thought it was merely scratched. I'm trying to make a copy of it so I can use it again as I need it to upgrade a machine here.

What's bizarre is that the crack goes from the inside out. Never seen that before, cracks always start from the outside in. This is particularly bad as CD's write from the inside out (unlike a phonograph record, for example) and the crack affects at least three files, one of which is the driver.cab file and particularly important.

If I can get it to work at all though, the damaged files will not be an issue as the updates to windows 200 will overwrite all of them with newer versions anyway.
