Copying Win 7 install files from DVD to USB keeps failing. Help Please ?

By wheatd32 ·
I continue to get this error ???File creation error - Data error (cyclic redundancy check).??? while trying to Copy the windows 7 installation files from the DVD to any other media. This happens after the copying process stops on this file (E:\SOURCES\INSTALL.WIM) for 30 minutes or more, then it appears to have timed out. E: is my DVD drive. I am using windows Vista, Xcopy. I also tried Teracopy it times out as well. Can anyone help please?

Yar, don't copy direct from disk.

The article Col posted should sort you out. You may also wish to check the disk for a smudge, scratch, spots, etc., just in case there is more than one reason for the CRC to fail.
