    Hi, I have been trying to copy a folder/file from a cd rom. It must be prottected somehow because each time I try and copy it (210mb in size), it gets half way through then stops or rather, it says £45 seconds remaining". thats as far as it gets. I have tried the same cd rom on a vista laptop and exactly the same happens. The file I need is a PRM file (satnav maps). Is there a way I can copy this file??? Any help on this will, as always, be very much appreciated. Thamks in advance

    What if you create an .ISO image from the CD and simply extract it after that?

    I think the only "protection" you are dealing with is bad media.
