Have you tried uninstalling from device manager and letting windows detect drivers and reinstalling?

Sometimes helps

CRC errors are read errors when accessing the data - so it's probably the drive(s) and/or dodgy CDs that you're copying from - more likely the CDs if you're getting on OK in other circumstances.
