Error:Data Error(Cyclic redudancy check)


Hi, I have a Transcend 320GB external HDD on which I copied my data for backup, later formatted the drive. Now, I was using U-Torrent to download some content but the client is showing the following error message:
Error: Data Error(Cyclic Redundancy Check)

What does this mean & please tell me a way on how to get rid of this error & start using my Disk once again.

I tried Chk Disk & it says the disk is fine but then I ran a check disk + Recovery of bad sectors & the whole thing got stuck on 30files!

Now, I have put it on defrag. Oh just recieved a msg. "your disk will be defrag at scheduled time"!

Re: Error:Data Error(Cyclic redudancy check)

The drive is completely new, never fallen off.
I transferred data to it for backup but later formatted the disk to NTFS from FAT.
When I download stuff from Bittorrent, the Error crops up.
The drive does not make any sort of noise.

I defrag'ed the disk & am running CHK DSK + retrive bad clusters. Don't know how would it work but presently it is showing: 24000 free clusters processed.

Edit: Chk dsk completed but don't know where to check report!(~7-8crore clusters processed)

Re: Error:Data Error(Cyclic redudancy check)

Please verify if this is happening only for downloaded files or any other file existing on the hdd ?
Like try opening a zip from a CD and then copy it to HDD and then try opening the same file. Does the error show up ?

Re: Error:Data Error(Cyclic redudancy check)

Thanks, after Chk dsk & bad sectors recovery, its working fine, i.e. downloading for now.

Don't know what the problem was! Hope it doesn't happen again!

Post your SMART settings using Speedfan or HDTune.
I'll tell you what it was.

speedfan is freeware. get it. or take your pick. Any SMART reporting software would do (even a DOS one)
