I have a copy of The Sims that has a straight two inch crack coming out from the center of the CD, neither one of my Lite-On drives can read it. It originally had a one inch crack and I was able to make a copy of it, but the most important file, data1.cab, is corrupted and the file objects.far won’t install.
Is there anything I can do to:
1 - Correct the file and the copied CD?
2 - Read and re-copy the original cracked CD?
3 - Find data-1.cab from someone on the internet, patch, then burn the CD is Nero orsomething?
4 - Anyhting else?
The CD uses the Old SafeDisc copy protection. The crack is straight except for one inch along where it is barely distorted, and only a very few very small specks of the CD is missing smong the crack.
Anything? Any tips orr tricks?
BTW, I don’t want to spend money on the gam e again, can’t take it back (It’s been to long and lost the box), and don’t want some gutted ripped warez version.
Please, any help would be greatly appreciated.
