I bought the gold pack a while back and put it on my laptop and it ran great, but due to a virus i had to do a clean sweep and reboot my computer, now when i put the CD in to install the game it says Play instead of Install on EaW. FoC lets me install and when i click Install Gold Pack it just installs FoC. Is there a way i can rip the files i need onto my computer manually to get the game? Or uninstall the part that makes it think it's on my computer? its not in my uninstall program either or program files Lucas Arts folder

look threw the files on the disk themselves and press autorun, sometimes that works
at first i didn't understand, i thought you meant to click the auto run that brings up when you put the CD in haha, but i found it and it worked, thanks man =D

I didn't make it!
Yoda's Help DeskCyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) is a checksum to verify that the file has not been corrupted. When the file starts to copy, the operating system compares the file from the CD to the one on the hard drive. If the file does not match the original from the CD , then the CRC error occurs. There are few things that can cause this:
1. Make sure the CD is clean and free of scratches. Even if the CD appears clean, take a soft damp cloth and wipe the bottom side of the CD-ROM starting from the inside and working towards the outside. Repeat as necessary until the CD-ROM is clean. If there are any scratches or imperfections, please obtain a replacement CD.
2. Try using a CD or DVD Cleaning kit (depending on the drive) to make sure the lens is clean and free of dirt and foreign material, even if other CD/DVDs seem to read fine.
3. If you are using Windows 2000 or Windows XP, make sure you are logged into an account that has administrator privileges when attempting to install or run the software.
4. If you are using Windows 98 or Windows ME, adjust Auto-Insert Notification and DMA.
- Go to Start, Settings, and then Control Panel. - Double-click the System icon. - Click the Device Manager tab. - Click the "+" sign by CD-ROM. - Highlight the CD-ROM listed there and click the Properties button at the bottom. - Click the Settings tab and remove the check mark from the entry by Auto-Insert Notification. - Click on the check mark next to DMA. - Click Apply or OK, and restart the system when prompted.
5. Check with the CD-ROM/CD-RW/DVD or System Manufacturer for the latest firmware for your CD-ROM/CD-RW/DVD drive.
6. If the suggestions above do not work, replace the CD.
