Put the disc in one of your other computers and share the DVD drive across your lan. On your gaming PC, access it and make an .iso of it to the hard drive. Mount the .iso with PowerIso.

If you don't know how to make an .iso, Google it. It's easy.

Nevermind that since you don't know. Here's step by step what to do:

Put the disc in the drive in the pc that can read it well. Use MagicIso to make an .iso file on that computer's C drive. So you should have something like
C:\Disc2.iso when you're done.

Now go on your gaming pc and open Computer (Windows Explorer.) Hit the Map Network Drive button. In the folder box type

\\theipaddressofcomputerwithIsohere\C$

(a real world example would be \\192.168.1.35\C$ or you could replace that ip address with computer's name instead)

and check the box to connect with different credentials. Hit finish and it will ask you the user name and password of the pc with the .iso on it.

It will open up the C: drive on that computer with the .iso. Copy and paste the .iso to a drive on your game machine. Now use PowerIso to mount the .iso.

Done.

Copy the file to a USB memory stick, and then copy it from there onto your machine. You can try burning the image onto a CD/DVD on your machine and then use that copy. It could be that the disk is not able to be read on your system, but is perfectly readable on another. By burning the image on your system you should have no trouble when it comes to accessing it since you will be reading the disk from the same drive that you used to create it.

Okay, I do not have a 5.8 GB memory stick sadly. And no Dvd's i have are any over 4.7. But i am out of those anyways. Any other suggestions?

The iso image is 5.8 GB

What is the size of the first disk (the one that you can read)? I suspect that the problem could be your DVD drive not being capable of reading dual-layer disks correctly. Can you play any dual-layer DVD movies on that drive?

I know nothing about dual layer discs. Never dealt with them before till now. Disc 1 is 4.02 GB. Never had to read anything bigger than 4.7gb on a DvD so i have never had problems before with reading Dvd's but as i said i have never used dual layer discs.
