So i'm trying to move all my music, and some of it has become corrupt (dont ask cause i wont be able to tell you how) and now when i try to copy the files to another HDD i get errors like file is corrupt, i/o device error (its an external HDD where the files are right now). so is there a program that will copy all files even if they are corrupt?

thanks

edit: i'm using win xp pro sp3

Did you tell chkdsk to fix the problems?

You could try the dd command in a live linux disc to copy from one drive to another, but the file will still be corrupt even on the new drive since it makes a bit for bit copy. If the disc itself is damaged, chances are it will not copy anyway. You should do as Sparda said and run chkdsk and do a repair. You can specify the drive in the command.

chkdsk driveletter: /R

If it keeps stopping, it might be either the HDD you are copying from is just bad(hardware issue/controller problem), the HDD you are copying to is bad or going, or there is some sort of communication error or buffer issue between the two devices. I'd say copy little parts at a time, not all at once, and see if they helps any. Also, don't interupt the process, just start copying and let it finish before working on anything else on the computer. Might be too much for it to handle, depending on what/how you have your pc set up and what you are doing at the time.

it is an older hdd so it could be going, and i think some random files are corrupt because it will get stuck on one song, then i'll try just copying the song, and everytime it doesnt wanna copy over so i just delete it.. i'm doing it slowly now (10 files/copy) and it seems to be working fine.. thanks

i'll give both of those a go in the future... i found that it was the hdd dying from when my old man knocked it off of my desk so some of the files were messed up.. but thanks for all the tips everyone, i got all of my files copied the "old fasioned" way.. took 2 hours but it was worth it..
