Windows 7: Problem Copying ISO Files Between Harddrives

Problem Copying ISO Files Between Harddrives

Hey, recently i've been having a problem when trying to move ISO files from one harddrive to another. I've tried with 3 different ISO files and all come up with the same error:

"An unexpected error is keeping you from copying the file. If you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search for help with this problem.

Error 0x80070570: The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable."

First time I got this error i just thought something had gone wrong with the download so i deleted the file and downloaded it again. Same problem. This made me think that maybe it was just that download but now I have tried 2 other files and gotten the same error every time.
This only happens with ISO files though as in case it was the harddrive or connection issue I tried trasferring some other .avi files and they went across without problem.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Are you transfering to an external hard drive?
Is the target drive formated to NTFS?
What are the sizes of the iso files?

perform a chkdsk of source and destination disk
Code:
chkdsk/f y:
replace y with actual drive letter

It was a Seagate 2tb External but there are problems with this model and i had to preform a 'fix' by removing the casing so it is essentially now an internal hard drive.
Both hard drives are NTFS format.
Most recent ISO file i have tried was roughly 6.5gb.

Responded Y and rebooted. CHKDSK checked C: and went to login screen. Tried to move the ISO file again and came up with the same error.

Very strange. rename Somefile.iso to somefile.txt and try to copy again. Copy works now?

It might be helpful to try to track down what type of controller (Intel XXX, Marvel, ???) your drives are connected too, the mode (IDE/AHCI/RAID etc) and the driver installed (Intel, Microsoft, Marvell etc). This could be indicative of a bug in the combination of your current components

Are those the only two drives you have? I.e. if you had three drives, would copying between any other two drives also show the problem? Would be good to be able to isolate the problem to a single drive as opposed to a system wide issue. (Maybe try copying the file from one location to another on the same drive, on both drives).

And I assume you are just drag/drop or cut/paste with explorer itself, not some third party file tool?

Can you copy a large ISO from C-drive to C-drive?
Can you copy a large ISO from F-drive to F-drive?

Nope still the same error. Im starting to think it might be the directory and not the file somehow.
