Try to format it first, if you can. If not, then its time to replace it.

CRC (cyclic redundancy check) error is usually encountered when trying to read data from a damaged disk.

Try taking the disk out and hooking it up directly to a computer.

Hi,

You do not have to format your hard drive. Cyclic Redundancy Error can be fixed without formatting. The link below will help you:

Try to format it initial, if you can. If not, then its time to exchange it.

CRC (cyclic redundancy check) error is sometimes encountered once attempting to scan information from a broken disk.
