Cant copy zip file from cd

G'day all, I just purchased some shares data which came on cd in a zip file. When I try to copy the file from the cd I get a file input/output error. This happens whether I use cp in a terminal or if I try to cut and paste on the desktop. If I try to read it with the archive manager I get a similar error where the archive error complains about missing zipfile directory. Here is what archive manager says: [/media/091007_0533/ASX DATA 1996 till Present/ASX DATA 1996 Till Present.zip] End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on the last disk(s) of this archive. note: /media/091007_0533/ASX DATA 1996 till Present/ASX DATA 1996 Till Present.zip may be a plain executable, not an archive zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /media/091007_0533/ASX DATA 1996 till Present/ASX DATA 1996 Till Present.zip or /media/091007_0533/ASX DATA 1996 till Present/ASX DATA 1996 Till Present.zip.zip, and cannot find /media/091007_0533/ASX DATA 1996 till Present/ASX DATA 1996 Till Present.zip.ZIP, period. I tried opening a couple of pdf files on the same disk and got input error for one and file is damaged for the other. Could this brand new disk be that damaged that it is totally corrupt? I cant see any scratches or anything on it. Any help copying this file to hard disk and unzipping would be appreciated. Thanks, BeerGut ps: I'm using Fedora 11 on a Dell D510 laptop ()
