Data error (cyclic redundancy check)

I am trying to copy or tranfer a file from my PC to a pen drive, but i am geting this error:

Error copying File or Folder
Cannot copy <my file name>: Data error (cyclic redundancy check).

if i move the file from folder to folder in my PC there is no problem,
if i copy the file from one place to another there is no problem either
but if i try to move the file or copy the file from my PC to a separate drive
i get the error message i describe above.

i am a little familiar with this error message for a long time, but never got the
chance to try something to get arround this problem and see if i can resolved.

Now, if there a way to fix this issue or problem?

I now many pages like this one for example: http://www.softwarepatch.com/tips/cyclic-redundancy.html
but there is not much to do, just explanations about the error and how to prevent it.

i wonder if there is a solution for this.

i even start my PC in safe mode to see if i was able to tranfer the file, but didn't work.
i tried to zip the file and then move it to the drive, but this didn't work either.

Thanks

Hi ComputerTechie,

is weird cus i don't have any problem to copy anything from that PC except that file.
must of the time i used to have this error, it was because of a bad CD with scratches
or a bad hdd, but this pen drive is new.

and believe it or not but i tried the chkdsk on the pen drive but it come out as no errors.
and about changing usb port, i did that too, and i even filter the usb port to get better results
but even like that nothing seem to work.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Honestly, i did not. i done it but only on the pen drive.
but like i said the error was only on that particular file.

Very strange.   Do a rename on the file and then try copying again.

Does this happen on this one file or other files as well?  It's happening on your zip file so this seems to be that the fault is on your pen drive.  It copies it to there and then checks and finds the CRC error.  If this is correct then your pen drive is faulty.

"Do a rename on the file and then try copying again"
Yes, the file let me reame it, there is no problem at all.

"Does this happen on this one file or other files as well?"
is just happening to this file and also with a picture .jpg.

"It's happening on your zip file so this seems to be that the fault is on your pen drive."
i don't know about that yet, maybe yes.

"It copies it to there and then checks and finds the CRC error.  If this is correct then
your pen drive is faulty."

when i try to copy or tranfer the file to the pen drive the file start copying fine, then
at 15% stop and it doesn't go anywhere, after 10 seconds the error message show up.

Try another computer and see if you can copy files to your pen drive there.  Same problem then it's your pen drive.

If it does copy then try your computer and see if you can copy off the pen drive to your computer.  Problem then it might be your connection, your cable or something else.

I think the problem is the file, or maybe not, cus the file is not locked or being used by a resource.
and as for testing if my pendrive works ok in another pc, yeah, it does work and i don't get this
error at all, is just on that other computer. so i don't know if the problem is on that computer or the files.

So the problem is happening with just two files?

Try copying a range of files.  See if it happens with small files or large files.  Size could be the problem.

"See if it happens with small files or large files."
RE: No, there is no problem with big or small files.

"Size could be the problem."
RE: Well actually the file is 6MB.
