Run chkdsk /f on it.
Create a new text file on the 250GB and then try copying that over. Do you get the error? What file system is the 250GB formatted with?

What motherboard/chipset do you have? It could be a USB driver issue.

Try the HDD with another machine to see if the problem persists. If it does, we can isolate the problem to the HDD.
Try copying a single file using the command prompt and tell us what error you get:
copy /v X:\random.txt C:\Users\Your Name\random.txt (change appropriately)
xcopy /c /j X:\random.txt C:\Users\Your Name\random.txt (change appropriately)

Format G: as NTFS. FAT32 volumes do not support symbolic links.
Use the following command to copy stuff over:
xcopy F:\* G:\* /E /F /Y /B /J
(note: it will overwrite existing files in the destination with the same name; but that won't be an issue if G: is freshly formatted to NTFS)

Yep, I read that, the G: drive is actually formatted as NTFS, as well as my main HD, and neither will be copied to from the F:
Also, I think I've narrowed it down to the F: drive as the issue, I tried it on another computer and no go.
Craziest problem I've ever encountered, lol.
