    Cyclic Redundancy Check error

    I cannot copy a file of over 650kb from a floppy disk.
    The disk keeps turning and making disk accessing noises for a long time, then displays the Cyclic Redundancy Check error message.

    Is there anything I can do to solve this problem?
    All other files open ok, but i've not yet tried with other files over 650kb.

    Your disk at a minimum has bad sectors (and might could be fixed with scan disk). It is probably going bad and you would be better off getting newer diskettes. Also keep them away from all magnetic sources (phones, monitors, televisions, speakers) and sources of dust. Man I am so glad I haven't had to use those in a while

    Pehaps try running scandisk against the disk (I think that can be done). CRC errors indicate a problem copying the file -perhaps bad data or some type of read error can it be copied on a different system?

    I've just tried scan disk and some Norton thing, but no errors were reported. Is there any way I can get the file off the disk? it doesn't look like it.

    Try a different system -narrow it down to bad disk or bad drive.
