When you used dd, did you try to copy the files themselves or the whole
CD? Try a

 dd if=/dev/hdx of=/tmp/cd-image

... or something to that effect. If you can get a copy of the CD (aside
from what's bad) and either view or burn it, you might have better luck.

Apologies if you'd already tried this and I missed it.  :)
