Try changing your packet size (lower) on your nic cards.

Here is a sample of my managed switch. I have 20 errors, due to pack size was to large. Was testing different size jumbo packets during a ftp transfer.

If you are getting errors, Also make sure you have flow control turned on, if not you will get collisions and errors too.

UDP packets can be dropped with no errors reporting, common during gaming.
