So i got doom 3, and it wont install. It "finishes" it stops at pak000.pk4 but it never ask for the 3rd cd. The installation bar is full and then the error message pops up. i have all the recent drivers, directx, etc. Error message : "Error 1305. Error 1305. Error reading form file F:\Setup\Data\base\pak000.pk4. Verify that teh file exists and that you can access it." Help please!! -Osstopagent
Dirty or damaged disk.
Try to clean it, if worst comes to worst return it for a non damaged disk.
Well it looks fine and ive cleaned it but ill try again! Thanks!
Thats the only thing i could imagine as the problem. According to your error it's a classic case of dirty or damaged.
Hummmm Well I cleaned it off and tried it again and it still didnt work. Hummm... if worse comes to worse ill return it for a different copy.
That seems to be the thing to do. Sorry I can't be of any more help.
Thanks! That is the most help ive gotten. Ive been everwhere. Even activision couldnt help, or should i say never answered. Thanks!
EH HEMMMM, hEY MAN, IF YOU HAVE ANOTHER CD-DRIVE TRY USING IT BEFORE YOU POSSIBLY WASTE A TRIP TO THE RETAILERZ. COULD BE A DIRTY/BAD CD-ROM MAN. DOOM 3 IS PICKY ABOUT IT'S DRIVES. --ALSO MAKE SURE YOU DON'T HAVE ANY PROGGIES RUNNING IN THE BACKGROUND THAT YOU CANT SEE MAKIN YOUR PC RUN/INSTALL LIKE DUMP. HOLD CTRL-ALT-DEL AND CLICK THE PERFORMANCE TAB TO MAKE SURE CPU USAGE IS BELOW 5% WITH ALL PROGRAMS CLOSED. --IF CPU USAGE IS HIGH RUN AD-AWARE OR ANOTHER FREE SPYWARE REMOVER! --AND OF COURSE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SCANNED YOUR PC FOR VIRII (VIRUSES) --QUOTEUNKNOWN--:cya:
... that wouldn't explain why the game installed perfectly... with the exception of a pack on one of the disks. Nor would it explain why other games on his system installs just fine. It's likely as i said. A damaged disk.
Having an adequte CD-ROM drive is something that goes without saying, as you need to be following the minimum requirements. But that's doubtfuly the issue.
i think i am the only lucky one who have this same error with you, looks like i have to go and return and get another copy from the shop......poor me
