I'm using CompactFlash cards and an Adtron PCMCIA-SCSI reader. The hard drive is a CompactFlash card on an IDE adapter. The card was formatted by the latest version of HDDRIVER to be FAT32/TOS compatible. In addition to large file copies, if ST-ZIP tries to expand any file bigger than about a meg, it complains about bad checksums.

It may have been something to do with the PC+TOS compatible format I was using but didn't get to the bottom of it. The size limit was 4mb or 8mb (don't remember which) - beyond which the files would be corrupted, guaranteed.
Ended up ARJ'ing the files into split archives < 2MB per slice and then later moved to much better methods for transferring files...
