File Transfer Error

Received this while trying to copy a file from CD-ROM (burned sucesfully)
to my hard drive:

Cannot copy FILE_NAME: Data error (cyclic redundancy check).

Windows 2000, NTFS on hard disk

Any idea what this is about?

I’ve gotten that error before. Usually on my old 24x sound blaster cdrom
when reading cds… sometimes it fixed itself when I used a cleaner cd on
the drive, sometimes when I moved the cd to another drive… sometimes no.
It means there’s an error in the data on the disc, either that there
really is an error, or that the cdrom is thinking there is (because it’s
dirty or defective). So something in this case is defective.

Try looking at your manufacturer’s website for info on the CRC error to
see if your drives falsely report them when damaged.
