If you cant copy the CD, then try to get someone else to do it for you. A copy of CDs, seemes to work for me when originals fail.
What concerns me is the error though. If it mentions something about failure in drive q, that may be related to something other then your drive. In some cases, drive q refers to a hidden partition on the HD. I dont think that I have ever seen a computer letter a CD drive as q, even a laptop.
Is there a way that you can view the CD from another computer, and see what is running? You might even get lucky enough that it has text files on there that you can read. Is only this CD causing this error, but other CDs run ok?
As your topic, you say that you can not do System Restore. Is this the only time that you get this error? When you try to do a System Restore, does it ask for your restore disk?
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.
