run scandisk on the drive. the cd could be screwed also.

If it was happening on my drive, I would start backing up my data and shop for a new drive or get a replacement. By experience, this is not a good sign.

it only happens for a few of the mp3's, do you still think it's a bad cd or bad hard drive?

ive never heard of a cyclic redundancy error on a hard drive, only on floppys. if you can copy other files off the cd without the error, it just sounds like a bad burn.

Oups...sorry, I just re-read your original post and I thought you were trying to move or access a file on your hard drive. Sounds like a bad burn to me too.
