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

I would suggest you to run a SFC scan on the computer.

2. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
sfc /scannow

How do you use a flash drive on the computar


Install the USB Flash Drive:
Plug the USB flash drive into a free USB port on your laptop (it is an approximately 1/2" slot, either on the side or back of the laptop).
Windows XP operating system should recognize it. It may ask you what you want to do with it. Select "Open folder to view files using Windows Explorer" and click OK.
Operating system should assign it a drive letter (see the title of the Windows Explorer window that opens).

Use the USB Flash Drive:
In Windows Explorer, click Folders button on the menu bar to show the installed drives on the left pane of the screen.
To copy a file from c:\ (hard drive) to flash drive:
Find the file you wish to copy on the c:\ drive.
Right-click it and select Copy.
Right-click the location on the new drive where you wish to paste the file, and select Paste.
(File should now appear in desired location.)

Hope you find this useful, if you have any more questions, just leave a comment and i will get back to you as soon as possible.

Kind regards

I plug in my FreeAgent Go portable drive and it does come up on the desktop. Where do i go form there

What do you want to do?
If its a pop-up from windows, just choose
"Open folder to view files using Windows Explorer"
If you want to see the contents, OR just open a new windows explorer
and find a new drive except your local drive. Sometimes
it just called "removable disk".
You have to be specific :)

Hard disk acess problem

Hi, What the message mean is that Windows can not read/understand the filing system (something like the Table of Contents in a book) and therefore do not which and where are your files in the 80Gb. A few things you can try: 1. Run Windows Scandisdk on the Hitachi 80Gb; 2. Run any third party disk check/utility such Norton Disk Doctor. Alternately, you can use a file recovery software (such as GetDataBack) to recover/copy all your important files from the 80Gb and transfer them to another mass storage device. Thereafter, you can re-partition and re-format the said Hitachi to start new/fresh/clean. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turnes up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
