Hi all! This is my first post. I would like to preface this by saying that I did try to search for answers for my problem, but it seems it’s just a little too specific.
This might be a little long, but it’s only for the sake of being thorough. I don’t want to waste anybody’s time by not providing enough information from the start.
Lately I’ve been having problems getting CRC errors when trying to install off of .bin files. I’ll load up the bin in Daemon, and install normally. Almost always I’ll get a CRC error fairly early into the installation. The error always looks like this.
“Data Error(Cyclic Redundancy Check)”
And the error is always rooted in one of the following two files.
Data1.cab or Data2.cab
This has happened with NOLF2, MOHAA, Splinter Cell, and Age of Mythology. But here is the interesting part.
I took my NOLF2 cd’s and burned an image of them using CloneCD. I then tried to install the game from my image cd’s. I ended up getting the same CRC error, but it was at a different point in the install. When trying to install from the BIN files, it bombed at 3% installed vs. 46% when using the image cd’s I made.
Does anybody have any suggestions as to what can cause this? I have a Plextor PX-W4824A and I’m using Win XP Pro.
Thanks in advance!!
