  1. Can not copy <filename> Invalid MS-DOS function

    Hi,

    When I attempt to copy a single 50MB file form external HDD to internal HDD via USB 2.0 I get "Invalid MS-DOS function." I tried to copy it to other PC, but it resulted in same problem. Anyone knows what to do?

    -Other files on the external are OK.
    -it is Maxtor DimondMax 200GB

    I fixed it.
    I ran a checkdisk with attempt to recover bad sectors and it worked. It took only 8 hours, but I can copy out now.
