CP: I/O error

I am getting the following message when I attempt to copy a file from a CD
to my Linux box.

cp: reading '/mnt/cdrom/unix/data/data.taz': Input/Output error

We are running Redhat v. 7.2, and the file I'm trying to copy is about
10.5MB in size.  I'm wondering if this is a size limitation of some sort.
We've tried this on several CD's so that variable is eliminated.  Finally, I
reduced the file size to about 6MB, and it copied without any problems.  Can
you provide me some information on why I would be getting this message?  The
only other factor we can consider is hardware.  All other files (.taz) on
the CD copy without a problem.  

Thank You!
