I am getting a cyclic redundancy error when I try to move or copy a music file from one location to another.

That means the disc is damaged. You can try copying it from a command prompt with xcopy. You need to use the /C switch so that it will ignore the errors like this:

xcopy source destination /C

The music file might have a pop or other glitch in it from the error, but at least you will have it.

Actually what I did was ran check disk from the command prompt to fix some bad clusters in about ten different files. Then I was able to move them anywhere I wanted to.
Thanks,

I performed a check disk from the command prompt and it fixed the bad clusters and fixed the problem.

OK, I assumed you had already done that! Sorry :)
