Each original file will have an md5 or sha sum which indicates if all files and the ISO size match the original.
Are you able to mount and play the files?

Set the user permissions for all users.

If that doesn't work then...

If you want to copy then I suggest the quick following:
Go through my post history for a Knoppix howto. Use the pre adriane release.
Attach a usb device after you have followed the section about character/keyboard repeat.You can copy the files to a usb key.

Sounds Like The Files Are Corrupted..
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / October 18, 2009 12:06 PM PDT

If the files were deleted or the user's profile was corrupted somehow, then the files are no longer accessible..

Your best option is a file recovery program, which may or may not be able to rescue the files.. There are a number of such recovery programs if you search Google including ones at the links below:;posts

Or the Pros at:

Hope this helps.
