Copyprotection or broken disk? (Winter Games)

I bought the Mega Sports compilation recently mostly for Winter Games. But when i tried to copy the files from the winter games disk in WB i got a checksum error on a file named " " (three spaces or something like that) which was about 270b large. All other files copied fine.

Could this be a copyprotection or is my disk broken?
(I tried to start the game on my A1200 and got to the menu (didn't have a joystick connected but it seemed to work fine), but with the ADF i created and tried in WinUAE it just Guru'd)

That 4 space file is Herndon copy protection on track 1 of the disk. Usually 1 or 2 sectors of track 1 have a deliberate checksum error in them at the DOS level.
