Ok ok...I really couldn't find any place on the boards where I could ask about this, so I hope I don't offend anyone...

I have a question about a game install problem. When I got my comp, with XP installed, the game installed fine. Now that I've reformatted and reinstalled XP, there is a file transfer error during installation that says "cyclic redundancy error" or something to that effect.

Any idea what this means or how to fix it? Or is it just a problem with the disk more than likely?

Which game and presumably this is from a CDROM?

One possibiliy is that the CD drivers may need updating. Have you checked Device Manager?

Possible temp workaround. If the CD will let you copy the files on it to the HDD then you could install it from setup in the copied files. Delete the copied files to reclaim space after the install.

The game is Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, but not the Spearhead expansion pack. I'll check out the driver issue, and if not that, try the next, and i'll get back to you.
