Hey all,

So I've got a few FLAC files on one hard drive that I transferred to another hard drive by simply 'copy' and 'paste' in windows explorer.

However, now when I try to play these files, in foobar for example, I get tons of decoding errors. I double checked, and the original files (still on the first HDD) play just fine with no errors.

Anyone have any idea what's going on here? Obviously the simple copy and paste is not being executed accurately.

Is there a way to accurately transfer data from one HDD to another?

Thanks,

What motherboard/chip-set do you have? There have been reports of data corruption ,copying data between two physical harddrives, on several of the nForce chip sets. I believe the same applies to several other chip-sets as well. Try to upgrade to the latest bios and you could also try to disable dma on you harddrives (Yes, it will slow down a lot) and see if that helps.
