When you try to write a block of data onto the disk-drive, a CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) value is calculated, based on the values of the bits of the data. Then, both your data and the CRC are written to the disk-drive. When you read that block of data, the CRC is also read from the disk, and the CRC is recalculated, based on the data that was read from the disk.

If the "new" CRC does not match the "old" CRC, then your block of data has been corrupted,
i.e,. the disk-drive is malfunctioning.

See: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US
for a professional "data recovery" service -- they will try to repair your disk-drive,
just long-enough to retrieve and copy all your files to a new disk-drive.

320GB seagate freeagent, cant open some of the files.


If you have the ability and space then recover any files that you can

use the RUN option from the start menu

now type in "cmd" then ENTER

Now in the black box that appears type "chkdsk x: /f /r" and press ENTER

The "x" is the drive letter of the drive you wish to check

It may take some time but this will try fix any errors it comes acrosss and you may have to re-start to complete the task.

Now remove any more files that you can.

Use the RUN command again but this time type "compmgmt.msc"

Select Disk management

Make sure you freeagent is listed here.

Right click and select "Format"

Select NTFS as the file system

Do not tic any other boxes

Click OK

When it is done you can move the files back to this drive.

It is quite possible you hit the limits of the FAT32 file system which would have caused the types of error you saw.

Error message: Failed- Replace Hard Disk 1 (Warrany ID error code 10008) what does this mean I have a compaq Presario A900


It means that Hard Disk 1, which is either the first or second harddisk in the laptop, has failed. First open the BIOS on your latop. Before windows startup there should be a Compaq logo on screen. There also is some text saying which key to press to access BIOS. In BIOS, try opening some menus and look for a menu that shows your disk drive. In the same menu should be your harddisk. If it is there, go to A. If not, go to B. A: The disk is not broken, it just made a write error that destroyed WIndows. Insert the disk with your operating system on it into the laptop, and reinstall it. Your data is gone, but the laptop will work. If reinstalling the OS gives errors, and is unable to complete, go to B. B: Your harddisk is broken. There is no way to fix it, and you will need a new one. Contact Compaq if your warranty is still valid, and if not, take it to the nearest computer shop and ask for a new harddisk. If you have any more questions or trouble just post back here. I hope this helps, Yannick

Unable to copy files from cd


Hi,
Please check with the another disk if the same issue is coming with different disks this is a ODD issue otherwise the disk is faulty as cyclic redundancy means the data could not red from the sector of the disk.
Thanks
