I am very sorry to say the drive( I think its a floppy) is corrupted. Try using Scandisk (Tools tab on Disk properties, then error checking). But that too has limitations and I won't guarantee it will solve, still trying does no harm.

While i am coping file in computer it display a message file intigrity violated and file are not being copied


Each block of data written onto the disk is immediately followed by a few "extra" bytes, namely the CRC ("Cyclic Redundancy Check") bytes. The value of the CRC depends on the data just written.

When reading your data from the disk, the CRC also is read.
A new CRC is calculated from the just-read data.

If the "new" CRC does *NOT* match the "old" CRC, then you have a "file integrity" problem -- either your data was not written correctly, or your data could not be read correctly.

It's a sign that your disk-drive is "dying".
Make a copy of all the other files, and save your pennies, to pay for a new disk-drive.

Tip

The NASTY "CRC" Error ......Tackle IT


What does CRC(Cyclic Redundancy Check “error”) mean?

There are plenty of technical resources on the Web that discuss cyclic redundancy checks (CRCs). Most times you won't need to worry about this technobabble. That is, until one it day it suddenly appears and you think - what the hell does that mean? In simple terms, a CRC is bit of mathematics used to ensure that your data is OK when being transfered. It's a checking procedure that quickly identifies when data has been damaged. If you get this message, it means that the file being read by your PC or software is corrupted. However, it does not mean all the data is lost forever. When data is transfered, it is usually in small blocks and each block is given a CRC value. If something goes wrong with the data between the time it leaves the source and arrives at its destination, the CRC sent at the source will no longer match the one that is calculated when the data arrives - this is when the cyclic redundancy check error will appear.

The most common time you will see the cyclic redundancy check error message is when trying to read data from a damaged CD or DVD. Just before it appears, your CD/DVD drive will probably grind and whirl away - your PC may also become a little slugglish.

Less frequent causes are the result of system crashes, and buggy software (hello Microsoft), incomplete downloads (often identified by the misleading message 'This is not a valid Windows file', 'This is not a valid win32 application' or 'Corrupt Zip file'). If this problem happens frequently with downloads, try using a download manager.

For CDs and DVDs, the problem is a little different. Normally, when CD/DVD drives get a CRC message from a disc, they try to read the disc again - hence the grinding sound. After several failed attempts, they give up and display the redundancy check error. The problem can be hardware (loose cables, failing drive), software or damaged media. In most cases checking and cleaning the disc is the easiest way to overcome the problem. If different clean discs produce the same error, it is likely to be a hardware issue (check the discs in another drive). Another common cause of these errors is poorly burnt CDs and DVDs - especially those that had numerous or severe buffer underuns. USB burners suffer from this problem when the burn speed is too high (generally above 4X-8X)

If the discs are damaged, you'll probably need a recovery tool to get back your data. CDCheck 3 will work for CDs and DVDs. First it will check the media, and then you have the option to recover the files. It's free for personal use and has saved many people heartache when it comes to recovering lost digital images and videos from damaged CDs.

When i trying to copy anything to my 2 gb memory card it says "cannot copy file data error cyclic redundancy check"


Try to format the usb device by right clicking on the drive and then selecting format option. Try to copy your data after formating is finished and the device is ready to use.
The solution is with the assumption that you are using a Windows Machine.

All of the above is true, didnt write it myself copied it from a good friends post. It is probably the data itself that is corrupted. Doesnt mean the data is gone. Try running a disk defrag, if that doesnt work try copying it to a cd/dvd and see if you get the same error. If you dont, flash your bios. This should explain your problem, if it doesnt follow up with me, email address is kustom42 at gmail.com.

My computer is running very slow. So I ran test of my Maxtor 6Y160M0 hard drive using the computer's "PC-Doctor" software. The 'linear' test failed, giving me an error code the instructions...


the drive is going bad
Try to format the Maxtor.
NOTE: obviously backup all important data to a removable drive or CD.
You will have to reinstall windows. so before doing this, make sure that you have the cd and Product key (usually on CD case).

Need to burn data DVD. After 98% complete it said : could not finish " All-in-one"" and Recording failed.


What software are you using to burn your data DVD? And Did you try burning the project a second time with the same results? If you did not try it again as you might have had a defective disk. This can also be caused by a cyclic redundancy error with one of the files you are trying to burn to the disk. To test if this is the case, create a new folder and see if you can copy all the files you are trying to burn into that new folder. If It cannot copy all the files to the new folder it will give you a cyclic redundancy error on the particular file causing the problem. Also, Make sure non of the file names are too long. Certain copy software only support file names up to a certain length
I run into this problem myself once and a while and one of the causes above are usually one of the culprits every time. If you need more help feel free to contact me and I will walk you through all the possibilities. Also, Make sure you let me know what software you are burning with as this will give me a definite solution to your problem. I hope this is enough to fix your problem, if not you can reach me at geokohler@gmail.com and I will call you for free to help you get this fixed.
