How do I fix "can't open file on cdrom" in linuxMint 14 ?

I get an error message: could not open file /media/dave/new/readme.txt unexpected error reading from file: input/output error. I can't copy these files to desktop either. Would really appreciate any help or advice. Thanks.

Most probably the cd/dvd (whatever u used) is corrupt and not readable...

Most probably the cd/dvd (whatever u used) is corrupt and not readable particular this track / file by ur system.
Try to duplicate the dvd via dd command. If the file is so important, use ddrescue(www.gnu.org/software/ddrescue/ddrescue.html)tool.
