Cyclic Redundancy Check

I'm trying to back up some stuff to an external hard drive. And there are errors in movies that I have ripped (because I either forget to put them back in the case or they get lost) some movies and whenever I try to move the video file (ripped int a AUDI0_TS file and a VIDEO_TS file) I have an error box where the title of the window in the blue bar says "Error Copying File or Folder" and in the window (the gray part) it says "Cannot copy VTS_01_2" Data error (cyclic redundancy check).". And then I click the "OK" button and it stops the transfer. The VTS_01_2 is sometimes replaced with whatever file that cannot be transferred or that is causing the problem. I used DVDShrink and DVD43 to back them up. I am running Windows XP sp3 and transferring them onto a 300 GB hard drive. Can anyone help me please? Thank you.

Put the USB cable into the rear port of your desktop computer. Sorry if this isn't a desktop but details are far too slim here.

It is a Lenovo 3000 N100 series laptop and it is plugged into the furthest part of the laptop. I have tried all four of my USB ports and it still happens.

Removing all partitions on said external drive, make a fresh new NTFS partition then format it and try again. If it fails again it may be defective.

I suspect that it may be the hard drive in my laptop. I've tried to back up some home movies like of my wedding on DVD to my laptop with DVDShrink and it says the same thing.

For the laptop hard disk...

Backup what you can fix then ...

Make sure the laptop is on your laptop COOLING PAD so it won't overheat and go get SPINRITE. I've seen it pull it back from the edge.

but how??

In reply to: For the laptop hard disk...

That's what I'm thinking about doing, but if so, 1) can I create a separate partition on my external hard drive without harming any other files and 2) i borrowed a copy of my uncle's spinrite 6. but the thing is... how do i use it? I've tried creating the .iso on a CD-R and putting the drive as the boot device and when i start up my computer it says "not a valid boot disk" or something or another, and then I've tried burning the files to a USB device, and then it says "Not a valid boot device". Am I doing something wrong? I do it from the spinrite.exe file. Is there anything I am missing that I need. Thank you for all your help thus far, I really appreciate it.

Sorry for the typo.

I meant "backup what you can first. Then fix..."

As to Spinrite, it's support is over at with video, FAQs and more. Good luck with that software and get your MONEY'S worth there. It's support is good from my experience.
