I would like to remind you that double posting or "bumping" is against forum rules, but now to the issue, is your disk scratched,scuffed, or flaking, most likely issue for a lot of optical media.

well it sounds like the cd/dvd drive in your computer is older and most likely more sensitive to some scratches. some drives, if good enough, will read the disk even with some scratches. the fast and quick solution is put the disk in your dads computer and copy it to another cd or to a flash drive

in theory yes as long as you are using it for yourself as a "Backup" which should be legaly alowed.

sounds strange, but optical media can seem elusive. skufs or light scratches are actualy easy for a drive to read than one or two larger scratches. this is becouse when you have a larger scratch it penetrates deeper into the plastic of the dvd/cd. and when the laser reads over the sectors with the scratch the light will be reflected/refracted diferently.
