RAR files giving CRC errors

I have the following PC configuration: an Intel C2D E7200, Intel original DG33FB motherboard, 4GB RAM 667 MHz, Seagate Barracuda 400 GB SATA HDD, XFX Nvidia GeForce 9600GT video card and an LG 20x DVD writer. The problem is whenever I try to extract a big RAR file I get CRC errors and the extraction fails. But when the same file is extracted on other computer the extraction is successful without any errors. Please help me I am fed up of this.

DIGIT ANSWERS: CRC errors can occur due to many different types of problems. Some of these problems are:

  1. Damage to file during the copying process.
  2. Problems with the device that is accessing or opening the file.
  3. Problems with the file itself.

Try re-downloading the file or transfer it from some other source, other than the one you are using currently.Try using some other compression software other than WinRAR. There are many good ones available. WinRAR also has a repair mode. Accessible through [Ctrl] [R] or the link is there on the task menu of WinRAR. Try it.
