CRC's - I've read what they are - but how do you work around them? This is the first time I have seen this error. Here is what happened:
I was trying to burn a CD and in the process - the burner or software (ASHAMPOO BURNING STUDIO) got hung up. So I cancelled the operation. I tried using Microsoft's burning CD feature and that got hung up as well. I had to use ctr+alt+del several times (with both methods) before the screen was cleared.
Now, I can not delete the folder I wanted to burn which is in the temp buring folder in XP. When I right-click to delete, I get the CRC error. Also, I dragged the URL from a site onto my desktop. I tried to delete this file, and again, got a CRC error. Now I can not delete the files in the Microsoft temp burning folder nor the file on my desktop.
I am running Windows XP Pro on an AMD Athlon XP 1800+ system. 512 Megs DDR, dual 40GB HDDs, dual AGP Graphics card (64megs - which i need to upgrade), CD/DVD single layer burner, second CD Burner. I do not play games on the PC, I use it for web and graphics design.
