Data block corrupted

I exported the dump file from 9i and imported it to 10g, but when I tried to export the dump file from my new server, it said "data block corrupted." What do I do?

I have installed Oracle 10g on a new server. Previously I was using 9i. I exported the dump file from 9i and imported it to 10g, but when I tried to export the dump file from my new server, it said "data block corrupted." What do I do?
Try exporting the data again and FTP the file (in binary mode) over to the new server. If you performed the FTP in ASCII rather than binary mode, this can render the export file useless on the target system. It is also possible that the export file was corrupted in some way, e.g., disk or hardware issues.
