Correcting corrupt images in Vista

Vista had a huge problem of corrupting images downloaded from cameras to external hard drives, and to some extent internal drives.

Service pack 1 for Vista seems to have corrected most of the problems, although there are still some issues with consistancy. Also if you have a peer to peer network at home with at least one computer running XP, hook up the external drive on the XP machine and the images accessed over the network display just fine on the Vista machine.
