"cyclic redundancy check", is usually an error code given, when, cd's or dvd's cannot be read by the system. I have not seen this error, from any type of flash drive, I < or anyone I know has used, but wouls assume, that the problem ( as with cd's & dvd's ), lies with the flash drive,

I can only recommend that you try the drive on another P.C. and, see if the same problem reoccurs.
