When I tried to copy a photo from a CD I got the following error: Can not copy (file name) Data error (cyclic redundancy check). Is it a softeware or a hardware issue? When I later tried from other computers there was no issue whatsoever! What I suppose to do?

Look like you might need a new drive in the computer that is giving the error. CRC errors means the the data cannot be read properly.

As the CD works fine in other computers it must be the drive at fault.

What OS is on the first computer?

In addition to the drive itself being the problem the data cable to the drive could also be at fault. IDE cables are fragile and SATA cables can error if folded too tightly.

A dirty or scratched disk combined with a dirty lense on the optical drive could also be the fault.

Possible RAM issue too.
