How a file would get corrupted is, I would be listening to a song, halfway through the song the music player would play something completely different, but according to the music player I'm still on the original track I was playing. It's as if, windows spliced to song together into one...
RoboCopy is built into XP as a hidden utility, but might require installation of an SDK / SP, cannot remember.
TeraCopy is a 3rd party software.
And if you were listening to your music while trying to copy it to another device, I'm not surprised that this happened.
As for your *nix box, depends upon 1) the hardware, and 2) the configuration your use for your installs. a default install of most *nix will not be strikingly
faster than a Windows install.
