You didn't specify your HDD manufacturer. Check wit hyour manufacturer if they have any disk diagnostic utility. Run that and see what it tells..

Try this:
1. Zip the file and copy to the desired location
2. Unzip.

I've got the same problem. I am copying from drive M to Drive Z. (Both are external) This is happening on multiple files. JPG's, excel files, word files, you name it. In the middle of copying a half gig directory I get the error message "cannot read from file or disk". I can open the files just fine. I can copy them to my C drive with no problem. But if I then try to copy them to the Z drive I get the same message, "Cannot read from source file or disk". I am stumped.

For some reason that worked. Genius!

With so many annoying error messages relating to basic procedures, it's no wonder so many people stick with Windows XP....
