I get the same error when just trying to copy the file on the same partition so i may just have really bad luck and have downloaded 3 different corrupted files! Haha

Not really!! Even corrupted ISO's can be read by windows OS. There are some bad blocks or unreadabel blocks or something like that.

Can you create a file succesfully on that partition where ISO already is? Let's assume there is a folder called MYTESTFOLDER:
  • Can you copy files to it?
  • Can you copy ISO files to it?

Created a new folder. Copied in an old ISO file from my other hard drive without problem. Then copied and pasted that ISO from that folder into a different one on the same partition. No problem.

So copying that ISO works!

please put that ISO in same folder as where the failing ISO is now.
  • copy that ISO to some folder to another disk.
  • copy another ISO from SAME folder to another disk.
So copy from some source folder to some destination folder. That fails as you told many times. Do exactly the same with the working ISO. That fails as well or works succesfully?

Copied the working ISO into the same file as the failing one and then copied it from there to the other hard drive without error

So copying from FolderA to FolderB works for 1 ISO but not for 3 other ISO's?

  • Can you copy ISO file from C:\somefolder to C:\anotherfolder?

Even rotten files with bad contents can be copied!
  • What is the size of smallest bad ISO?
  • What is size of working ISO?
