Another test would be to copy the problematic file to another physical drive - to confirm it's not some sort of performance issue with one specific drive. (Maybe the actual clip itself is fine - but the specific drive speed/bandwith is the issue- especially if it's failing)

Maybe it's possible that the original copy was in fact "ok", but some other corruption to the file occured after the transfer?

There wouldn't be anything else suddenly interfering with playback from the drive (virus checker, updated playback software, hard-drive setting change, etc)? You never know when some OS automatically updates some driver or something. (I keep mine disabled)
Hello Ed: the files are exactly the same size.

I finally found out it was a problem with my hard drive. I don't know if it's possible what you say about the file getting corrupt afterwards...

I don't think playback interference is the problem, because it's very determined, not random or sporadic or happening with every clip indistinctly.
