I have a DVD for a laptop to reinstall win XP, it worked before, but this time it wouldn't because somehow disk got damaged even though in sleeve. I used a cd recovery program I used before with good luck called roadkil's unstoppable copier. all the files it showed were recovered fine. now that I have them copied I tried using win2flash to make a bootable image, but because of the manufacturers pre boot program it's not working, and errors out. any ideas of how I could recover the disk, I tried just doing copy to USB, but didn't work not sure if can just rip and burn new DVD and will work. can get new media, but $30 for like 3 DVDs from Toshiba, and they add lots of junk, that I think is half of the problem why in 3 yrs its crashed about 3 times.
