Access data lost!

Access database won't open

Error reads "Cyclic Redunancy Check"

Data is stored on a Zip drive, it will not open from its orignal location....

When the zip is transferred to another zip drive the database opens but it won't re-save to itself or another location.

Any ideas

check if the original file is read only.

Also do you need to save the file to the zip drive or can you use it from your PC if you can save to a newer file?

The data is on a zip drive...... when trying to open message say the data is lost.

But when i insert the zip in another PC the data appears but it won't allow me to make a copy, back it up or send it by means of copy/paste or sent to: i.e. another location like a pen drive or even the desktop.

The data in the original zip drive won't open....
It will open in another zip drive......
But it won't re-save anywhere!!!!

Any ideas

You may have corrupted data on the zip drive and possibly the drive is starting to fail click here

to make another database, (which will create another file), in a location you choose, and then importing into this database the data from the "faulty" one.
