Jpegs corrupting when copied

I have windows XP.
I just recently changed motherboard and hard drives, and now when copying jpgs from folder to folder, or drive to drive, I wind up with several truncated jpegs that I can no longer use.
It does it on either of my hard drives.
I have never had this problem until I made the changes above.
Example of problem:
A folder containing 50 jpg images is copied to another folder.  Image 20 and 37 are corrupted.
The original folder is copied to another folder, but this time image 4 and 30 are corrupted.

Any ideas?

Run chkdsk /R on each of the drives your are using - you will have to reboot to check a system volume.

most likely you have some problems with your motherboard drivers, maybe the lack of them

P.S.
does the problem exist only then copying jpegs ? what happens when you copy other file types ?

I would imagine you changed your motherboard and hard drives for a reason. Is it possible that some of the jpegs were corrupt due to an original hard drive or system problem? I would make sure you are working exclusively off of your 'new' hard drive and copy the jpegs only after you know that the files are good. are both drives connected to the  system cables or USB.?

Could be a faulty controller on the board, are the hard drives IDE o SATA? If they are IDE make sure you are using 80pin cables or try new cables either way. Is this only happening when you transfer .jpg files or do other file types (ie: .doc .txt) get corrupted aswell?

this error must be for your hard drive or ide controller driver.
my opinion :
- install the driver for ide
or-change the cable
or-format your drive again

Thanks for the many responses.

I changed motherboards because my old one was going out.  I added a drive when I did this.
The problem is happening with new JPEGs, so the problem isn't with old corrupt files.  I can actually recreate the problem at any time by copying a bulk of JPEGS to another folder on either drives.  It doesn't corrupt a lot, but it will always do at least  four or five out of a hundred.  (which is not acceptable).

I don't know if the problem is happening to other types of files, but it doesn't seem so.

 I think I have one drive that is SATA and another that is IDE, and its happening on both.  I'll check this and get back.

The problem can be with a faulty HDD or faulty data cable. If the HDD has some errors, it may be the problem. You can try running CHKDSK. If this does not help, try replacing data cables.

Well - I did say about running chkdsk first... and there is nothing in the original question to indicate that the data cables were the problem - as in my experience they tend to either work - or they don't...
