Yep.. drive itself is broke. Check dmesg or /var/log/syslog for more detailed error messages.

comment A Windows DLL stored on Debian, then downloaded back to Windows won’t work anymore
@Incubbus, encodings are for text files... eclipse should be treating it as a binary file... but again, if it had the encoding wrong and mangled the file as a result, its md5 sum would change.

comment Can I install Windows 7 64-bit with 16GB to run more 32-bit apps at once?
Why the down votes? This answer is more or less correct. The only fault I can point out is that memory is allocated in 4 KiB pages, not 1 MiB at a time, and I'm not sure what MS has done with their silly licencing restrictions on various flavors of windows today, but NT used to have a boot.ini option to move the user/kernel split to 3/1 GiB so 32 bit applications could use up to 3 GiB per process.

comment My internet speed wont run at 1.0 Gbps on my Realtek PCIe Family Controller
Shielding has nothing to do with it... you can get shielded or unshielded cat5 or cat6 ( unshielded is most common ). The difference is the characteristic impedance. Also if it were a crossover cable, it would not limit the speed. Either it would work fine ( because at least one end has automatical polarity detection and reversal ) or not at all.

If the md5s are the same, then the contents are the same. In other words, there's nothing wrong with the file.

comment Effects of Drag & Drop and Copy-Paste on FAT32 file table
Bingo... this player stupidly relies on the order the names appear in the directory, which nobody is supposed to care about. They do this because it would take some amount of work on their part to sort the names say, alphabetically, so they take the easy way out and just play them in the order they are listed in the directory.

comment Why is serial data transmission faster than parallel?
There is so much wrong with this answer I don't even know where to begin. See the other very good answers in this very old question for what is really going on.

comment Graphics Card causes PSU to reset?
As for resetting when you move the card, then you don't have the card all the way in the slot and you are shorting something out. Don't do that!

Where did you hear of such a thing? DAO is just Disk At Once, meaning you write the whole disk in one go from start to finish.

comment Computer does not boot, even POST does not execute
If you are sure the PSU ( or that you didn't use the right one or connect it fully -- the extra 4/8 pin connector is required ), then yea, you need a new mobo/cpu.
