More files randomly corrupted

Still having that problem with samba seemingly corrupting files, it seems to be the same files that are corrupted again and again, yet they are corrupted differently and sometimes not. I ran my md5 summer against one file ch02.pdf, and it almost contineously corrupts, I checked in a hex editor and there are some differences. Yet the problem is that its not read the same way each time. The md5 changes and oddly enough this seems to affect some files more than other. Ironically ch02.pdf is eBook on Samba, ch01, and ch03 almost never seem corrupted I've moved both of the files to see if directory depth has anything to do. And it doesn't I also checked another machine, now the other machine running the same version of samba (Samba 2.2.3a [Debian Version]), yet diff versions of debian (stable vs. testing). I can't figure it out, I don't know whats causing this or where to start really. To make it worse someone told me there isn't anything in the samba code to cause this. 

Finally all the files that seem to be corrupted when being read, seem to be intact on the file system they are stored on.
