Hi Everyone:

I am trying to copy some .DLL files that I have on a CD-ROM.

Using Windows Explorer to copy/paste gives a fatal error dialog:

Error copying file or folder.
The parameter is incorrect.

Help please!

Thanks

Leigh

Have you tried copying them from a command prompt?

Thanks, pschwan, for your suggestion.

I have attempted copying the files from a command prompt, using both 'COPY' and 'XCOPY'.  I get thee same 'invalid parameter' error.

Is this a burned CD or one from a company.  Usually when a cd burn isn't good, it will give you a cyclic redundancy error or won't read at all, but it's possible the CD is bad.  We get this every now and then when we burn cds at 8x when they're only rated up to 4x or 6x.

See if you can get another copy.

Can you copy or read another file from the same CD?
How many sessions has the CD?
Is the CD in UDF format (created through an application like DirectCD)
Can you copy the sam file on another system?

Thanks, pschwan, for your suggestions.

I tried copying the same files on a Windows 98 system and it gave a similar error.

I am now convinced that this home-burned CD is corrupt- but I have access to the original files on Hard disk.

Leigh
