I'm not bodging anything up, this is a known problem that has plagued nforce since nf2. You might of just been lucky, or you aren't moving massive amounts of data at a time to cause the corruption to start.

Here is one of the longer threads concerned with it, it also outlines methods to test if your computer is suffering from this problem. It also notes that Maxtor drives in particular are prone to these problems with nforce chipsets.
Cool. I honestly didnt know that. I transferred 40gb in one big go. lol!!

Also the majority of those are linked to Maxtor HDD. They guy here has Seagate.

The simple way is just to transfer a bit at a time.

Sorry I think you misread, the "i.e." was an example of the format to use not the method of formatting. I should really of put it in the middle of the sentence than at the end, my bad

Oh and the fury, yeah i've had problems with my WD's causing corruption, although since moving to DFI I can't say i've suffered from anything. DFI's really are superior mainboards, in a lot of ways most users probably won't appreciate. Also as long as the individual files are quiet small there doesn't seem to be a lot of fragmentation. I only seem to get it when moving 5gig ISOs around, and large video files.
