Several years ago I transferred all my home videos to DVD's. Now I learn that DVD's degrade over time so I'm now copying the DVD's back to a 400gb hard drive to preserve these videos. When copying the larger files within the Video_TS folder, some come over (25%) and the rest all error out with this cyclic redundancy check. Its very frustrating. I have updated the firmware driver for the DVD drive but that deonst work-Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated/Russ

Means its having trouble reading from the disk. This can be a sign of a faulty disk or a faulty drive. First thing to obviously try is copying using another DVD drive.

I had this problem previously, as well as other problems. In the end it was faulty RAM, so if the discs or drives are fine, it could be the RAM. Just another consideration...
