You may have to wait some time before you start on this part: First there is some information that needs to be downloaded from the net, and then the search index will show "Rebuilding Search Index", and it may take a little more waiting, before it finishes and shows "Quick Search" above the search box. Then you may proceed .... 3 packages will show (not 2), and you should choose gddrescue ONLY (check-mark the box).
Once the search index has been rebuilt, enter “ddrescue” in the Quick search text field. Two different packages will come up; make sure that you choose “gddrescue” and not “ddrescue,” which operates slightly differently.
At this point you may close any open windows on the desktop before starting a terminal, by clicking on the small orange&black-coloured x at the top-far-left of the window.
The rest of this guide will be done in a terminal window ...
Navigate to the location in which you will save the .iso file. In our case, it’s a newly mounted hard drive, so we’ll first change to the /media directory, and then use tab completion to change to the directory that represents our hard drive.

and press <ENTER>.

From what you have said, it seems that you can see/access all your folders & files, but can't "retrieve" them. Is that correct? How have you "tried to" retrieve your files?
if I can't make a bootable copy of my XP CD, is there any way I can retrieve files stuck in my hard drive? I've tried to ... but got a message saying that I didn't have permission.

That's all good news.
I've now been able to save files from my HDD ...

During the computers initial boot the BIOS supplier will be displayed. If the OEM(Original Equiptment Manufacturer) logo splash screen is displayed, press the ESC key to see the boot up information. Press the Pause/Break key if text displays too fast.
This feature allows you to change the boot sequence for devices.
* USB Flash Device — Insert the memory device into a USB port and restart the computer. When F12 = Boot Menu appears in the upper-right corner of the screen, press <F12>. The BIOS detects the device and adds the USB flash option to the boot menu.
You can use this feature, for example, to restart your computer to a USB device such as a floppy drive, memory key, or CD-RW drive.
NOTE: If you are booting to a USB floppy drive, you must first set the floppy drive to OFF in system setup.
1. If you are booting to a USB device, connect the USB device to a USB connector.
2. Turn on (or restart) your computer.
3. When F2 = Setup, F12 = Boot Menu appears in the upper-right corner of the screen, press <F12>.
If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft Windows desktop. Then shut down your computer and try again.
The Boot Device Menu appears, listing all available boot devices. Each device has a number next to it.
4. At the bottom of the menu, enter the number of the device that is to be used for the current boot only.
For example, if you are booting to a USB memory key, highlight USB Flash Device and press <Enter>.
