Cyclic Redundancy Errors

From time to time on my pc I get a "cyclic redundancy error" message. I have done some research to find out what it means etc but what I am looking for is some info on the beat way to cure the problem. Sometimes I believe the disc's are not in the beat of shape but other times the disc's are brand new so are unmarked. One web site suggested a free program called CDCheck 3. Doea anyone have any advice/suggestions on what I can do?
Thanks Max

CRC Error Troubleshooting!

CRC errors mean the data being read is corrupted.

Are you burning CDs and verifying them, and that's when it happens or are you reading CDs?

If you are burning CDs, try reducing the burn speed or using good discs like Memorex or Imation. If you have trouble reading non burned discs as well, try the tips below:

Common problems in order from most common to least common:

Bad disc
Bad drive (or a dirty laser lens!)
Bad drive cable or loose connection
Bad RAM (use memtest86 to test the RAM)
Bad IDE controller driver
Bad IDE controller
Unstable or overloaded power supply (system may run fine until the disc drive is used!)
System temp too high (usually this causes much more than CRC errors )

Is your system overclocked? Try reducing the over clock if it is. Bus overclocking causes this more than multiplyer overclocking.

If it turns out to be a bad drive, replace it with a Lite-ON drive. Cheap, reliable and fast drives, what more could you ask for? Get them at www.newegg.com

Let me guess, you're trying to copy DVDs using DVDShrink when you get that error.

Well I am using a good brand of disc but it mainly does it on dvd's even some that have never been played. It also happens on Mrs Max's pc! Neither pc is overclocked and my pc has 1gig of Kingston Ram. Its being played on a HP drive that can use lightscibe so its a good drive. To date I have not come accross a solution to this issue.

I take it you are trying to play a DVD right? You get CRC errors on both machines eh? Well, are both PCs identical? If not, the problem could be a virus or something else interfering with the data.

Who made your PC? Do you know what motherboard chipset you have? I need this info! If you don't know, get Everest Home and use it to tell you what chipset you have.

I suspect IDE issues on both machines. Have you installed any games using Star Force copy protection? SF is notorious for f'ing up disk drive communications.

Both machines are HP. Mine has Nvidia graphics card, sound blaster sound and twin h/d. One is partitioned. I am using a lynksys router for wifi and Mrs Max's is connected through that. I am using Norton 06 and all checks show that all is ok. The motherboard / chipset are still orignal its an Intel Celeron Cpu 2.7, 2.69 Ghz with 0.99 gb of ram. I have hardly any games on my pc at all other than Bejewelled & Marjong so I doubt that there is anything using Star Force. Hope this helps, rgds Max
