A CRC error means corruption of the VDI. Since I doubt very much that VirtualBox itself does a CRC check (there is no CRC field in a VDI header that I recall) then I assume this is actually a serious disk sector error being passed back by the I/O subsystem of your host. You urgently need to run chkdsk on that host drive - and if the VDI is corrupted then only a backup will fix it.
