CRC error (cyclic redundancy check) happens when there is a problem reading the DVD/CD. Caused by faulty DVD, faulty Drive or if you are lucky the DVD needs a clean.

If you have a friend that has TRU also is a good way to test it.

If your friend disc goes fine, then its the disc itself. If you test another disc and doesn´t run fine, then its your drive

Do you have a read-write DVD drive? (They can be a lot more accurate.)

BTW, have you every cleaned that DVD drive?

Next trick is to turn-off everything that you can, so you have most of your system dedicated, just for the install. (Windows, since its IBM start, has always been a nosy system and likes to poll everything, for services, no matter what.) :cool:

I deleted the USB DVD drive and restarted to reload the drivers. The DVD copied this time.
Now hopefully the game will play.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions
