if i "move this file", "copy/paste", or "send to..." E:\ (cd drive)", a popup says, some content will be lost but file will be intact. to ensure it can be read, i go to E drive and dbl click on the file, and WMPlayer plays it to half way and then freezes. furthermore, i copy the file from cd back to c:\my videos, and it's unplayable. and the size of the file is reduced.
when i do the proccess differently, like,
nav to E:\ through windows explorer, open it and drag and drop the video from desktop to E:\ drive folder, i get the same popup but, after the task is done i see the size of the file remained unchainged. and is viewable from the cd. unlike the proccess above.
while i no loger have the immidiate problem, i'm curious as to whats going on. i read the tutorials at bc. i'm not sure an encription program is involved. or have i unwitingly side stepped it.
it's one of those videos from http://www.killsometime.com/Video/Videos.asp
i did some looking but i just now googled "cyclic redundancy check". should have done this first.http://www.softwarepatch.com/tips/cyclic-redundancy.html
odd though, the same cd was used for all the attempts.
