Copying CD files to folder, then copy folder to another hard drive, explorer hangs

    If I copy files from a CD to a folder and then copy that folder to
    another hard drive Windows Explorer hangs and doesn't copy the files,
    or just a few of them.

    If I reboot and then copy the folder it works fine. My hard drives
    are all SATA. The CD's contain photo files, aprox. 600 megs on
    average, up to 25 files or so.

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    It appears that the problem involves stn files (a compressed image
    format) and maybe MS indexing. And if I exclude stn files from
    indexing and then go back in to that window, it is checked again to be
    included in indexing. Can't find a way to get indexing to exclude
    these files.

    If I do the same steps using just the tiff files on the CD I have no
    problems.
