How can I fix Cyclic Redundancy Check on external drive?

This problem is caused by bad sectors on HDD. refer to for more information

1 Answer

Hard disk cyclic redundancy check

A cyclic redundancy check error on a hard disk means that part of a file read from the hard disk doesn't match the expected value.

A cyclic redundancy check error, in other words, means that files on your hard drive are corrupted.

Repair a cyclic redundancy check error on a hard disk using the Check Disk tool in Windows.

Click "Start" and click "Computer."

Right-click the hard disk with the cyclic redundancy check error under "Hard Disk Drives" and click "Properties."

Click the "Tools" tab at the top of the hard disk "Properties" window.

Click "Check Now" under "Error Checking."

Select "Automatically Fix File System Errors" and "Scan for and Attempt Recovery of Bad Sectors" in the "Check Disk" window by clicking each option if it isn't already selected.

Start a disk check and repair by clicking "Start" in the "Check Disk" window.

Click "Yes" if the "Do you want to schedule the disk check to occur the next time you restart the computer?" prompt appears.

A disk can't be checked if it's in use, so you'll need to restart Windows to check it.

Restart your computer by clicking "Start," clicking the arrow icon to the right of "Shut Down" and clicking "Restart."

Fix a Cycle Redundancy Check Error

The "Cyclic Redundancy Check" error is a Windows error message telling you there's a problem reading data you're trying to access.

The root of this problem could either be a damaged storage device or a corrupt file.

Windows has built-in tools to attempt to fix to this problem, and avoid further errors.

Click on the "Start" menu in the bottom left-hand corner and click "Run."

Type in "cmd" and press "Enter" on your keyboard.

This will open a black command prompt box.

Type in "chkdsk /f" and press "Enter."

If you receive a message saying the disk will be checked the next time the system starts, press "Y" and then "Enter."

Restart your computer by closing the command prompt box and selecting "Shut Down" from the Start menu.

Wait for the disk scan to reach 100 per cent.

This may take awhile.

When it completes, your drive errors may be fixed.

Avoid future problems with this type of error by replacing the file that caused the problem.

For example, if you got the error when using a text document, open the document and copy all the text (press "Ctrl" and "A" at the same time and then "Ctrl" and "C" at the same time).

Create a new text document and paste the text in by pressing "Ctrl" and "V" simultaneously. Save the new file, and delete the old document.

Hope this heps

Easiest way to fix that problem is to save all your important files onto an external hard drive and reformat the hard drive, otherwise you will be trying to correct this with Antivirus programs and other junk that will only cover up the error message. Alot of times it is easier to format and reinstall the operating system than try to figure out tose error codes, and windows never gets their stuff right.

Good luck.

This is problem with registry, there is some sort of corrupt data in your registry which can be cleaned by registry repair.

By the way you can open your drive by using explorer drop down address bar.

Explorer.exe Application error

Hi bj_bhuvnesh,

 Whenever internet explorer crashed, you would see the overwritten message.The best option would be to upgrade the browser if you are not using IE 8. You can also copy or format and again install the windows. Create a back up and than format the drive in which you have installed windows files.
Check the below mentioned :-

Thanks for using Fixya.

Hard drive may be going south and there may be bad sectors on it. Run WD diagnostic program on it and cross your fingers. Do not format the drive - that will erase all. If you do find bad sectors the check disk program will find and block bad sectors and move data in bad sectors to good ones whenever possible. After that you can recover as much as you can but not all because there will be areas where nothing can be read at all depending on the severity of the damage to the sector.

Abit th7raid motherboard-160GB HD cannot recognize-needs flashing-out of my depth!

Hi coonster,

Abit TH7 Raid driver.

Windows inability to see all of your hard disk drive is not a motherboard issue.
It’s a windows issue. ( I suggest you use the hard disk drive software from the manufacture’s web site). Most allow you to download software that allows you to create a bootable floppy disk. Boot to this disk & setup the drive in a dos like window.
Once completed you can now boot to the windows CD. Do not allow windows to format
the drive.
That is what the manufactures disk will do for you. Install windows & please update it fully. Windows should see all of the 160GB after updating.
If you feel you need to update the bios, feel free to do so.
Follow Abit’s instructions on how to update the bios from this link;

If you have never downloaded a bios file or drivers from this site it can be a bit confusing. You’ll need to high-light the entire link below, than right click once to open the pop-up window. Than left click copy. Open internet explorer. Right click once in the address window & left click past. Than press the enter key on your keyboard. The site has a timer on the left side of the page. You’ll have to wait for it to reach zero.
Than a yellow bar will open across the top of the page that says, (To help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options...). Right click once on the yellow bar & left click download file. Create a folder on your desktop & name the folder " Drivers". Download the file named "" into the driver folder. Us any uncompressing program & uncompress the file keeping the files within the driver folder. The action of uncompressing the *.zip file will create another folder named " Disk1".

To download the Abit TH7 Raid bios is done like the instructions above. For this bios file you’ll need to do the same with the link below;
Abit TH7 Raid bios file name " th736.exe ".

Please retype verification code: "enter code listed on site".
Press enter.
Again create a folder on your desktop & name it Abit bios.

You will not find any drivers, bios or manuals directly from Abit. They no longer support this motherboard.

Good luck!
