Don't think it's my hdd either since it's only 3-4 years old. This isn't a disk error, it's a decompression error. Also I'm getting it every single time I try to load the game now.
If there is a error in the data when its written, that would cause a decompression failure. And write errors won't be detected unless you have write with verify (which slows down writes) enabled in your OS and BIOS...

Most Hard-disks these days only have a 3 year warrenty (or less), and I've had experiences where a HD would start going bad only weeks after the warrenty has expired...
