Hi!

I am facing this problem when trying to Install Commandos 3 - Destination Berlin. The error that I am facing comes at 26% during the installation of the first CD. I have taken the screenshot of the error I face and have posted it on this site:

After pressing 'OK' , the installation just stops.

Can someone please tell me how to avoid this error and overcome it?

Thanks,

Does the disk work in another computer? If not, then the disk is shot, get it exchanged.

Try cleaning the CD?
maybe it is dirty on the bottom?
Data Cyclic Redundancy usually means there is a Data read error problem.  

It is most likely from the cd rom....try a differnt cd rom drive? or computer as suggested?

Cuz it could be the controller for the CD rom, or the Cdrom itself....or the CD....

And may just be the motherboard as well...

I think the disk is broken BUT you can recover it.
Use BadCopy (http://www.jufsoft.com/badcopy/)
It's a shareware that will recover your CD easily.

Hi!!

Regarding this software BadCopy Pro, before I use it I wanted to know that when the program recovers the files from the CD , where will the recovered files be saved? On the harddrive? If so I will not be able to install the game as some of the files will be on the CD and some on the Harddrive. I dont also think I can copy the CD onto the harddrive, then replace the recovered file and then install as I think SecuROM will come into play and wont let me install the game.

Thanks,

Yes there will be a problem with Securom and also with BadcopyPro (because 'till you register, you can't save the recovered files...).
There is a solution for all this, but I can't tell more because we're on EE...
Sorry

Hi!!

I think you misunderstood what I was asking. I am going to buy the BadCopy pro software and therefore I will be able to save the files on the computer. What I wanted to know is if I can then install the game from the harddrive or will I not be able to do so because of securom? And is there a way to avoid securom because I have the original cd with me...

No, there will be no problem with the setup of Commando or maybe you'll have to burn the files on a CD but Securom won't matter.

Enjoy the game

Hi!!

I bought the software and tried as you said. I still got the same error. I would normally sue but the software helped in getting some files off old cds and floppy disks (that I needed) lol !!  :D

I tried installing on my friends computer and got the same error. So I went and replaced the cds (thats why the delay in giving the points) and the new ones work!

Thanks a lot,

NielsenNielsen
