I've never really understood CRC errors, what are they?

Just really annoyed after completing a 30 hour download of a PSX game on 56k and finding out it has CRC errors. Is there any way to fix the errors?

CRC = cyclic redundancy check
a crc is basically a value that is generated to verify that a file has no errors compared to a master copy. nowadays, md5 hashes are used on p2p networks to do the same job. so yeah, just a way of telling you have a perfect copy of what you want.
sorry about the psx game though :(
