Hi,
I use a tablet PC(IBM) to teach my class. This tablet PC doesn't have a CD/DVD drive.
And I have a software on a DVD, which I have installed.
But this software doesn't run, if the DVD is not present in the DVD drive.
I tried to copy the DVD contents as am image file using ImgBurn, but there was this error :

---------------------------
ImgBurn
---------------------------
I/O Error!

Device: [1:0:0] HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T20L NC08 (F:) (ATA)

ScsiStatus: 0x02

Interpretation: Unknown (CRC or ECC Error) (0x10, 0x90)


I also tried to copy the CD contents as they are, but there is
a file named DATA.tsr, which is not being copied.
When I tried to copy through, Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V,
I got this :
"Cannot read from the source file or disk".

I got similar errors when I tried to copy through command line.

How to get around this?

Some software titles are copy protected, and some of these protection schemes require the original CD to be present in the drive. You will have to connect an external CD drive to your PC to be able to use that software.

Hi mboppe,
I had tried magic ISO, but there was some size restriction in the trial version.
so I tried imgburn.
but it couldn't create an ISO(as attached in my first message)

Hi,
The problem is solved now.
I copied the DVD contents excluding the Data.tsr file and created
an image of those files/folders only.
Using that image with Daemon tools works perfectly fine.
I guess Data.tsr file was kept intentionally corrupt to prevent any copying of the DVD, but
if you ignore that file and copy the rest of it, it's very much fine.
