Oh, I forgot to add....the CD can be played on a PC without problem! 
Right now, a PC person is copying the file to a fresh CD, I take it 
and convert to mp3 using Audion.

I have tried to copy the file to my desktop directly from the CD 
first so that I don't "damage" the original CD but get the message 
"file cannot be copied, error 36."
