if it works with different hardware (only mb differs or also soundcard etc?)

as you can see in my second reply to your mail, there is a strange thing
in the header: there is ~ids instead of vids. it's bad, and either your file
is corrupt or your hardware (cpu/ram/hdd) is broken and reads the correct
file badly.

I suggest you running memtest86. if it's ok, then check hdd functinatily.
copy a big file (bigger than your ram amount) and then compare (diff) with
the original. If your hdd/mb fails it will differ.
