  1. Hi guys,

    I have a Maxtor DiamondMax 10 200GB internal HDD made external. It is hardly a year old and sometimes I get error message when attempting to copy a DVD5 out of that HDD into the internal HDD on my PC...
    The error reads:

    Error Copying File or Folder
    Cannot Copy VTS_01_1 : Invalid MS-DOS Function.

    I dont know what to do

    That probably means its copyrighted and illegal to copy!!!!

    Well WRONG...
    2 Reasons why:

    -The Data is allready on HDD. If it would be copyrighted, I would not be able to get it there (any legal way) because of the protection.
    - I have made that DVD myself. SO, fully legal (to me)...

    Sorry, copyrighted material can cause that kind of error!!!!

    Try limiting your dvd burner to 4 speed and see if that helps!!!!

    In that case, error check both drives and see if that helps!!!!
