Here’s a weird problem. Some time ago, I seemingly made a successful backup of Max Payne 2 using the twinpeak method. It installs and runs fine on my desktop, but a problem arises when I try to install it on my laptop (which is the system really I want it on).
The Install Disc has no problem, but when it prompts me to put in the Play Disc, I get a CRC error with “Data3.cab”. I’ve tried installing several times, and always get this error immediately after I insert the Play Disc. I’ve even tried copying the CD’s to folders on the HD (thinking I might be able to install from there), but when it tries to copy Data3.cab, Windows XP tells me there’s a CRC error (I have a Dell Inspiron 5100 with a DVD/CD-RW Combo drive listed as an “HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4241N” under device manager).
Anyone have any ideas why this happens on my laptop, but I have no trouble at all installing on my desktop?
