    Run chkdsk /r on the disk with the error.

    Guess I didn't explain properly. I was copying a DVD to my computer with the program I always use, when this popped up. "Data Error: cyclic redundancy check". I have used the program before with no problems. I found a program on line the says it will fix it for a price but would rather fix it a no cost. I ran chkdsk.

    thank you for any help

    If the error occurred on the DVD then it is most likely corrupted.

    If the error occurred on your HD then chkdsk may help. If after running chkdsk you still get errors on your HD you should find out what model HD it is and run that vendor's hardware checking software. It could be your HD is about to go out.

    If you are having a problem with your HD backup your system ASAP.

    CRC error means the device attempted to recover from read errors but could not. Either the DVD is damaged or your DVD reader is dirty or on it's way out. Test the DVD on another machine to be sure.

    You can pick up a CD Laser cleaner @ most retail stores,pretty cheap.Also you can use the same on your DVD player for the TV.Which should be used every 8 to 10 hrs of playing time.

    CD/DVD players do not get dirty from use, they are a non contact system - unlike VCR players which drag the tape across the play / record heads. The only problem is likely to be some dust and you can clean that by wiping very gently with a soft cloth. Don't use liquid cleaners because you may leave residue on the lens.

    cheers, Paul
