One specific file on my hard drive cannot copy to a new location - it always has a cyclic redundancy error. However, the file appears normal - I can run virus scans on it with no problems, and I can play it (it's a music file) from start to finish. It's not an incredibly important file, but I wonder why this happens. Why would there be an error of this type for simply copying the file to a new location on the same drive?
Details which may or may not be relevant:
- Windows XP Professional version 5.1
- file type in question: .m4a
- the file was introduced to my computer from a CD, but no error messages occurred at that time
