Copy all files to a HDD and try reburning.

The disc is probably scratched.  Go buy a disc doctor and try that (around 40 dollars)  Or for a cheap solution...  the pumice in toothpaste works well to remove scratches from a disc.  But only rub the disc from the center to the edge because more scratches in a circular motion will further damage the disc.

See this site for detailed instructions.  http://www.ehow.com/how_892_repair-scratched-cds.html
Also if you don't want to spend the money on a disc doctor and toothpaste doesn't work, RadioShack sells scratch remover solution in a bottle.

I agree with Huntersvs.  Many times those types of errors will show up when running from the CD, but you can copy to the Hard Drive just fine.  If so, burn another copy from the Hard Drive.

A cheap trick to try is a chapstich (original no color or flavor) use it on the bottom side and buf it lightly with a cd cloth let bry for a min. and try it works on dvds to.

OK...was able to copy the data to a HD and then to a new CD.
But now when i install, i am asked to put the CD labelled "windows 2000...." in the drive and press enter.
it will not work with the new cd but will work(with all the copy errors) when i put in the original cd?
i dont see a volume label on either one when i check the properties?
pdadddinoAuthor Commented:
actually...it appears that they both have a label with the date/time format of creation date.
is there an internal volume label?

It worked!
I had originally copied all files from CD to hd back to a new cd inside a win2k folder.
I recopied to new cd at root instead of into win2k folder.
Did the win2k reinstall with the new cd successfully.

Thanks to all
