I know the steps to fixing the player anim/script error have been posted, but no one has posted a response to the problem that happens on the final step, when copying the files, an error appears that says Couldn't copy pk4.pk3 ciclic redundancy error, if anyone knows how to fix this i would appreciate it

if your getting a problem from copying pk4.pk3 from your cdrom to the main folder of call of duty then try copying from another cdrom / dvd drive as it could either be a dirty drive or dirty / damaged cd.

Ciclic Redundancy Error Check is a problem with the actuator (laser head) in your CDROM that misses a command from your CPU and miss-reads a certain track on your CD. It is also related to problems with the disk itself. If the disk for instance is old or scratched the Actuator will miss-read a track on your CD. You get the same error message for both because the Acutator itself cannot determine the real cause as it can be either two. make sure the disk is clean and that your CDROM doesn't persist in giving the same error. If it does persist you know it's a hardware problem and time for a new CDROM.

So in other words just do what I said above :D

A guy in our clan had this exact same problem. All other games posed no problems on install, just that CoD:UO would give him this error. On install it gave him the pk4.pk3 error and his game was brand new. I took my copy over he used it to install, no problems. Now, my uncle is having issues with coduomp.exe error (found in this thread http://gamingforums.com/showthread.php?t=154956 and it's not fixed yet). What is funny, both my uncle and this other guy had problems installing the game. It can't be system specs, as one runs AMD and the other P4. Also, my uncle's copy won't install on his older P3 computer, so I'm wondering if it's some sort of disc problem. I will post an update on this later.

Given that both these people's specs are above the minimum system requirements for the game, that is clearly not the problem. In most cases it's the disk. I have had the same problem with other games and I simply took the game back, got a trade-in for a new game and it worked fine. In other cases it was the CDROM/DVDROM drive that was the problem. Make sure your Drive/s aren't very old and need checking out first.

right if anyone has problems with the installation then I would suggest taking the game back to the shop, but if the installation goes through with no problems but you get the pk3 error then I would suggest the following:

copy the pak3 file over form the setup/data folder of your cd's

this normally fixes the problem as most of the time it turns out to be the cd/dvd drive problem either dirt or a lens problem. If you can copy the file over then it should be alright, but if it doesnt then you know that you'll have to try another cd/dvd drive.

I've had it happen to me a few times and found out that the best drives to install or copy with is either a cd writer or dvd writer as they can mostly get past most cd problems. As cd writers are very much so dropping in prices it would be the best way to go.
