Cyclic redundancy error
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,
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.
