    Can't you just copy from cd to drive on your laptop?

    As mentioned just stick in the drive and copy. However I'm assuming the post came about as the CD maybe unreadable now. Either keep trying or ask a friend. I've had issues myself reading old burnt CDs that would only read in one of my older CD drives, oddly.
