I've looked at other threads about this and none have any answers. Please DO NOT reply unless you know what the problem is and what I have to do. I am running at: -Windows XP -40 gig HD -1400 mhz -ATI Radeon VC (not the problem cause the game has worked before) I use to have Windows ME last week and I upgraded to Windows XP over the weekend. I went to install Medal of Honor: Allied Assault and I get the following error when It reaches from 70%-85%. //Component Transfer Error Component: Data Files Complete File Group: Data Files Complete File: D:\main\pak2.pk3 Error: Data Error (Cyclic Redundancy Check) |OK| When I go to click OK, all it does, is shut down the installation and I've tried it several times and I get the same thing. Thanks for any future help, -Laguna

Ok

Do you have the original MOHAA? If so i should contact EA. Or do you have an illigial version? It also might be the CD, maybe it's damaged?

It is the real version and nothing is wrong with the disc. As I said, it worked like when I had ME, so it's not the disc. Maybe I need something special on XP or something? I tried contacting EA Games, but their Support page is down, lol. So, I saw this and was wondering if anyone knew what to do. -Laguna

Yea, right when the installation starts it tells me it requires Direct X 9.0+ and then it says I have the newest version, so that isn't the problem.

It most likely is the disk, if not something is wrong with your CD drive. Cyclic redundancy checks happen when data checks itself to make sure it has all the "information". If the two values don't match it gives that error. It is almost always caused by a faulty disk. :uhm:

Here is help for the CDC error Thanks to a great forum with wonderful help i msharing that info below :) Cyclic Redundancy Error or "CRC" Error This error may appear when installing any expansion. What it means is the CD-ROM speed has dipped below acceptable reading levels for the Install Shield software to read accurately.

First, check to see if there are any scratches, fingerprints, or marks of any kind on the disk surface. Something even as small as a piece of hair or a very light scratch can cause this error. If you find any fingerprints or debris try cleaning the CD with a soft cotton cloth.

If you do not find any scratches, fingerprints, or marks of any kind on your CD, try renaming the InstallShield folder, located in C: \Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield, to InstallShieldOld. To do this, follow the steps below:

Double-Click My Computer Double-Click the "C" Drive Double-Click "Program Files" Double-Click "Common Files" Right-click on the "Installsheild" folder and choose "rename" In the hilighted section type "Installsheildold" Start the installation again to reinstall the InstallShield components with the newest version.

If the above does not work, try the following CD Troubleshooting steps:

For Windows XP:

First, try the SafeDisc driver fix from Macrovision: link removed in order to post?? Redundancy Error or "CRC" Error

If that doesn't work, make sure that you are logged in as the Administrator (for Windows XP Professional) or Owner (for Windows XP Home). This will usually be the first account that was created once Windows XP was fully installed. If you are not certain, contact the manufacturer of your PC for assistance in finding your Administrator/Owner account.

Next, make sure that all background tasks are closed before running the game. To do this;

Hold the Ctrl and Alt keys down at the same time and hit the Del key once. This will in turn bring up a window called "Task Manager". You will then see 5 tabs; Applications, Processes, Performance, networking, and Users. Select the Processes tab; this will list all current programs that are running. Close all programs that have your login ID next to them. Your user ID is listed in the second column next to the program name. For example here is a portion of what you should see;

Image Name User Name Session ID

Explorer.exe Owner 01

The Image Name column is the name of the programs currently running. The User Name column is where you will find your User Name. The best way to check this is to locate "Explorer" and see what it says under User Name.

Also, do not close any applications that say "System" next to them. Be sure not to close a program labeled "Explorer" or "Taskmgr" as well. You close each one of these applications by clicking on each one and hitting the button "End Process". Note some applications may take multiple times before closing. Don't worry that you are permanently changing your system configuration; these applications will return when you restart your system.

If the game still fails to start, try running the installation for the game using the Program Compatibility Wizard. You can find the wizard program by clicking on Start - All Programs - Accessories and you will see the shortcut for Program Compatibility Wizard listed there. Make sure that as you walk thru the menus that you select the option "I want to use the program in the CD-ROM drive." which will be the options on the second screen of the wizard. Once that is selected, select the option "Do not apply compatibility mode" which will be on the next screen. Be sure to only have checked "Disable Visual Themes"; do not apply any other graphical settings. If any are selected be sure to uncheck them before continuing. Continue to follow the screens until it asks you to test your settings, which will activate the autoplay menu to install your game.

If the previous steps did not work, and you have 1500mb of space on your hard drive, you can copy the entire cd to the hard drive and install the game from there. Follow these steps...

1. Right-click on your desktop, select New, click Folder, and name the folder CD Copy. 2. Double-click My Computer, right-click on your cdrom and click open. 3. Press control+A to highlight everything, and then press control+C to copy everything. 4. Double-click the CD Copy folder, right-click in center of the folder and click paste. 5. Remove the cd from the cdrom drive. 6. Double-click the CD Copy folder, double-click the setup folder, and then double-click the setup file (the icon will look like a computer).

After you are finished installing, you can delete the CD Copy folder.

For Windows 95/98/ME:

Try installing the latest version of DCOM for your operating system. Here are the URL's to download the version for your operating system;

SORRY Made me remove links ????

Also, if you have any virus protection programs like Norton or McAfee, temporarily disable them by right clicking on the icon in your system tray in the lower right corner of the desktop and selecting "Disable" or "Exit". Also be sure to end all background programs before attempting installation. Do this by hitting Ctrl+Alt+Delete simultaneously and end tasking all applications except for Explorer and systray.

Also, make sure that the default cdrom drive in windows for playing audio cd's is the cdrom drive that you installed the game from. 1) Go to "CONTROL PANEL" (click Start -> Settings -> Control Panel) 2) Double-Click "MULTIMEDIA" 3) Click "CD MUSIC" Tab 4) Where is says: "Default CD-ROM drive for playing CD music", choose the letter of the drive that the game was installed from.

If the previous steps did not work, and you have 1500mb of space on your hard drive, you can copy the entire cd to the hard drive and install the game from there. Follow these steps...

1. Right-click on your desktop, select New, click Folder, and name the folder CD Copy. 2. Double-click My Computer, right-click on your cdrom and click open. 3. Press control+A to highlight everything, and then press control+V to copy everything. 4. Double-click the CD Copy folder, right-click in center of the folder and click paste. 5. Remove the cd from the cdrom drive. 6. Double-click the CD Copy folder, double-click the setup folder, and then double-click the setup file (the icon will look like a computer).

After you are finished installing, you can delete the CD Copy folder. ***
