1. What do you mean by "file DVD"?

2. Can explain in detail where / what you're copying from and where you're copying to?

3. Why are you copying PS? Youi should either let the upgrade do the migration or re-install it properly. PS depends on auxiliary files in the Common Files folder, as well as many registry entries, not to mention the licensing engine.

By file I imagine you mean folder. Sounds like you could have a bad DVD - did you verify the burn?

try a different machine if you can to rule out:

1) DVD Media
2) Optical Drive
3) the entire PC

Windows 7 stops copy halfway...

I've seen this behaviour as well. The same disc with files on it (this is a Data disc) copies fine from a Sony VAIO BD-ROM drive but not from my Dell desktop DVD drive.

The same Dell desktop DVD drive works fine with other DVD's. So I'd agree with the "it's a bad DVD" disc theory. Perhaps the Sony VAIO just has a better drive. Both are running Windows 7.

I tested from the command-line on the Dell DVD drive using Robocopy (built in to Windows 7).

2010/02/04 21:37:06 ERROR 23 (0x00000017) Copying File E:\OneOfYourFiles.txt
Data error (cyclic redundancy check).
Waiting 30 seconds... Retrying...

I find that Robocopy can sometimes recover, it copied the dodgy file the 5th time and proceeded to copy the rest.
