hi,

30 mins ago a DVD arrived...I was very happy to have 5365 now...

but :( now when I was copying the files to HDD Windows, UltraISO and CloneCD gave me all a Error that the install.wim is corrput ...

all other files from the DVD I could save on PC.

so, my question is:

Someone knows how to get the install.wim on HDD ?

I'm not sure it would be worth it, because if the WIM is corrupt, you probably won't be able to recover it, and it won't install with a corrupt wim :(

Shame..

Try CDRoller...It attempts to read from bad sectors of damaged discs carefully until it can get valid data off of the media. It worked for me when I had to recover my Windows NT 4.0 disc. itallows you not only to recover files off of corrupt media, it can makes images from those discs too, eliminating the worry of losing your boot information.

CDRoller isn't free unfortunatley, but it's the best I know of in terms of functionality and data recovery... it's definatley worth paying for.

Also, if you have a Plextor or a good known brand of DVD-ROM/DVD-RW drive, use that for the extraction...it'll make a world of difference. I use my Plextor Premium for data recovery and extraction and it can read just about anything vs. a standard DVD-RW drive. Anywaze, hope you can recover it :-)

it says to all files that they cant be read becaus they are damaged.

but only the install.wim is corrupt..all other files I already have on PC.

I know another software called BadCopy Pro...But it ain't free either

Anyway, Is there any physical damage on the disc?
Or maybe, wipe the disc and try again?

Like tpemail said check and see if there is physical damage or if it's just dirty.
If it is dirty, try cleaning it with warm water and a soft rag. Let it air dry.
I've heard of some people boiling water in the microwave and then dropping the CD in for 15-30 seconds to clean it before, but I can't say if that works or not.

Try dvdisaster

It may seem to be a tool for adding extra redundancy to your discs, but it also has options to try and extract an image from a bad disc.

As well, try IsoPuzzle

I know this is late, but I figured I'd put in my 2 cents.

Since the recovered file is showing a size of 0KB, it sounds like it just didn't recover properly.

As 4tified suggested, look into trying to read the disc from another optical drive. Plextor's are great, this is true. In my experience, trying to read a corrupted file from an older optical drive has given me better luck than using newer drives. For some reason I have better luck accessing files which otherwise would be inaccessible. If you have an optical drive that is a few years old laying around, it wouldn't hurt to try.
