Thanks for your all your answer

Unfortunatly and I am quite sure that it does not have to do with the disk.
I have tried several disks and it is in the same way.
I have changed the motherboard and cables.
I have run harddisktests DFT and Seatools and both are reporting the disk is

When I get E is damaged I run chdisk and several of the files are in the

I have discussed with other people and they say that Windows 2000 can´t
handle disks above 131 gb. There is a patch for Bios from Microsoft with
should fix this problem but it does not seem so.

It seems that I have to install Windows XP which will cause other problems
for me.

I guess that your disk is damaged :-). This has nothing to do with the
type of files you copy. Try to fill it with some other files - you'll get
the same error message.

If you have 2000 SP3, try this:
(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servi ces\atapi
\Parameters) add the EnableBigLba registry value to 1.

Windows 2000 can definitely take disks over 131Gb, I have had 200 and 250Gb disks working fine in 2000

I have 250 GB HDDs in two machines running Win2k. Win2K will not support HDDs above 131 GB without a small change in the registry. You can either DL a program to make the change for you from one of the HDD manufacturers, or you can make the change yourself. In either case, it won't take more than 30 seconds and your computer will recognize the full capacity of your drive.
