UPDATE: 1st Feb - We're currently investigating issues with notifications - earlier issues that may have been preventing some users from logging in have now been resolved.

"cyclic redundancy check"

4 posts in this topic

hi guys, here's my problem:

when i start downloading some files, bittorrent works right. maybe a little slow, but that's not important right now. the problem is when i reopen bittorrent the day after i started and al my unfinished files are being "checked". some of them won't even start being checked (they say "checked 0%"); some other go up to 30-40% and then say "data error: cyclic redundancy check" and become one of those hideous red arrows. if i make them start again, it happens again, or sometimes it even blocks the program, and i have to close it with my ctrl-alt-canc. in the rare occasions in which it succeeded in checking, it continued to download from when it had stopped; but it stopped again with the same cyclic redundancy check-thing.

how can i get rid of this cyclic redundancy check?

thanks to everyone who will answer!

Unfortunately, the error you're getting points squarely at either hard drive failure or hard drive controller failure.

The first step is to do a deep scan for damage (properties of the drive in your "My Computer" interface, tools tab) on the drive you're downloading to.

thank you very much, it worked

actually, i did the scan but it didn't show anything strange. so i just moved the downloading folder to another drive. now it works perfectly.

thanks again!
