Norton Ghost 2003 pissed me off

Hello i'm having some problem with browsing an Norton Ghost file.
I have used Norton Ghost to back up my 2 partitions HDD into 5 CDs. Now i can only browse the first two CDs.

First, i run Norton Ghost Explorer. I have 2 CD drives. ( D:\ and E:\ )

It asked me to put the CD 1 which contain the CDR00001.GHO in

- I put it in D:\

Then it asked me to put the last CDs contain the last segment in.

- I put CD 5 in E:\ and chose the file CDR00013.GHO.

It gave me a Warning: An NTFS partition is spanned over 2 segments of the image. Unless all segments are avaiable at once, this may lead to execcessive disk swapping. Do you wish to load this partition? Yes  No

I chose Yes. Then another warning: An NTFS partition is spanned over 4 segments of the image. Unless all segments are avaiable at once, this may lead to execcessive disk swapping. Do you wish to load this partition? Yes  No

I chose Yes again. It asked me for CD 2 in D:\. I put CD2 in D:\ and it read the cd for some second. Then it ask for CD 1 in D:\ AGAIN.

Option 1: Put the CD 1 in D:\. It will continue the disc changing proceed ( this is not normal because it require changing disc just after some second after putting the required cd in )
Option 2: Chose Cancel when they are asking for Disc 1 in D:\ . I put the CD 1 in E:\ . It let me choose the new destination of the CDR00001.GHO file in E:\. The loading partion 1 began and run up to 100%

After that it required the Disc 5 again. I put it in.... and then it say image Corruption, can't continue...

I'm pretty sure that there was no image corruption, it maybe just sth that doesn't link all the .GHO file altogether.

I was also try to copy all the .GHO file onto a folder and try to make them work. but no luck.

Can anybody explain why is it required continuous disc changing ?

I just need some files on the images, not the entire image.

If you copy the image files off the CDs to a hard drive location and it still claims the image is corrupt you likely have a bad CD.
Try viewing each image part with Ghost Explorer. Then determine which image/CD is bad.

Oh another thing, try using only the CD Writing drive when copying the images to the hard drive. CD Writers seem to be able to read CDs better than the standard drives. Good Luck.
