sonsie Posted April 1, 2006 Share Posted April 1, 2006 This is probably really elementary for a lot of you, but I don't know the answer: I have an old homemade CD with data on it. I'd like to copy the data to my hard drive. I know there's a bug on the CD because last time I used it, a scan found a bug on my computer and I traced it to the CD. I have no idea how a bug on a CD interacts with the computer, so please bear with me if I ask some 'well duuuhhh' questions. The bug is xpl.wmf, but the CD is about 7 years old, so I don't know if it's the same as the recent windows exploiter bug, which is what I get when I look it up. Is it safe to insert the CD at all? If so, is it safe to insert the CD, copy it to the HD, take the CD out and immediately delete the file that the bug's in? Can you copy a CD to HD in safemode? If so, is that my best bet? Any help appreciated. sonsie Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
