    If it's a failed copy paste from certain types of copyrighted cd's, then it's likely to be because of the copyright protection.

    Or may be that the data is unreadable in that particular sector?
    Is it?

    I put in the XP CD and then Start -> Run -> sfc /scannow

    Now Copy Paste works fine,This solution was posted in MIcrosoft Users forum

    Well, I don't believe that the CRC is true to what is says on smh.com. It says that the file is corrupt. In fact it's the hard drive that is corrupt. (Bad sectors). Dilipdilip, if I'm correct the scannow /sfc will be only a temporary fix. The reason why I say that is that when you do a Check Disc for Errors (under the properties of the hard drive) it will move the data from the bad sector to a good one. I think the scannow /sfc is the same procedure.

    The CRC error happened to me a while back. Luckily enough I backed up my documents before the drive died on me.
