    Corrupted .wav audio - can it be repaired?

    I have a CD of Russian exercises which seems to have got corrupted.

    I've tried it from the CD, copying to the hard drive, and in VLC and Movie Player.

    I've attached an exampleTrack 1.zip - you can hear that the sound is choppy. I had to .zip it as .wav is not a valid attachment.

    Is there anything that I can do - or should I just give up and buy another CD?

    Is there any Ubuntu programs that can automatically or manulally fix this?

    EDIT: The problem is not with the CD as another CD has exactly the same choppy sounds.

    Thanks.

    I solved this by ripping the .cda files in Windows 8 then saving to a USB.

    Both the ripped .mp3 and .wma files work fine now in Ubuntu.

    There was clearly something that Ubuntu 12.04 did not like with the audio files on the CD.
