A cyclic redundancy check, known as a CRC error, often occurs when you're attempting to transfer data to a hard drive. It's most commonly caused by an interruption in the recording process, but also can be a sign that you've got problems with your hard drive or optical drive.
Here are some steps fixed the issue:
Rule out problems with your computer Start by defragmenting your disk. Click the "Windows or Start" button in the lower-left corner of your computer screen and select "Control Panel." Click the "System and Security" icon. Choose "Administrative Tools," then "Defragment your hard drive." This will clear up clutter on your hard drive that could be causing the error
Use the CHKDSK program in Windows to see if there are other problems with your hard drive. Click the Windows or Start button and select My Computer or Computer. Right-click the drive with the CRC error. Choose Properties, then select the "Tools" tab. Click Check Now. Make sure the program will fix disk errors by checking the top square in the dialog box. Click Start.
Thanks for using Fixya.
