i have noticed that my computer copies files to a flash or memory card and after a few minutes or few seconds of usage the files have errors. i have tried with music files and as soon as i start playing them the media player give error that the codecs used to compress them are unknown or file format is not supported. i wonder because the original files in the HD are all error free and they play well.

You don't mention the connection type, but if you're using different media and getting the same results, I'd suspect the port(s) being used... Try an add-in card...
