Well, I just install the Windows XP Pro, SP2 in my computer.

Every installation of drivers, software, program are just fine.

But I always get hurt by CRC Error when I am installing games. Especially the newer games.

For example, Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield & Athena Sword, Deus Ex - Invisible War, Rome: Total War, Thief: Deadly Shadows

What is CRC Error? How to fix? and how to avoid?

There is not such problem in older games such as Deus Ex, F1 Challenge 99-02...

What the [content edited] is my computer going on?

Are you using your burner to install the games?

I usually get those errors when I install games with more then one disc on a burner. Have you tried a different drive? I would recommend trying a different cd rom driver as it could be the dvd drive ( I doubt it). Just some things to try.

The error is a CD read error, which in turn reports the file being copied as bad and hence you get a CRC error. I'd recommend you to use a different drive.

My computer is semi-DIY. (I select the hardware and the vendor build it for me, I can gain warrantly in that way)
As I have changed the IDE cables, CPU heatsink. Will it void the warrantly? Besides, the vendor miss attach a warrantly card of HD to me. Mine is WD's HD, but the attached one was......Seagate's Warrantly card.. (I just discover it after a month I build my system)

I always think the CD reading error, it is doubtful that only games CD installation have error, but Software NOT!
Also, it seems the error occured in random manner. Sometime early (as just start of CD-1 or End of CD-1), sometime late (at CD-2)...This Problem is really annoying.

The firmware of the DVD-ROM is the most updated one....I thinking to use back my old CD-ROM which made by Panasonic.

Thank you for all, you're very helpful to identifing the most possible problem I hit.

Will there is the driver problem of the ROM?

Games more then 1 disc mostly have this error on burners I don't have a normal cd rom I have a dvd rom drive and a dvd/ cd writer... Thats in both of the computers below in my sig. I always have to use the dvd drive, as the burner always gives me a crc check error when I get to the last disc. It happens on the UT2004, and BF:vietnam installation. Software generally isn't writing two or three gigabyte files on to your system, not even windows is 2GB's I don't think...

it's the drive then....
i DID have the problem, but it was HD related... sometimes even downloaded software (that means no cd or such) gave me CRC errors....

Thanks

Thats [content edited], my warrantly card of HD is mis-attached by the vendor.....what I can do is to......buy a new one. I might consider a SATA HD of WD, which store games, but not system. or a PATA (same as my current HD).
So I can have 160GB in total 2 HD...^^"
But first, I need to buy a new mobile phone. My old mobile phone's screens dead for a year already. I just revived my red pockets and got to put some extra money for a new 3G mobile phone.

Afterward, I need to save money for the new HD.
One of my closest friend, who always use my computer to play games, "Might be your ROM's problem, also the HD" he said.

Some extra diagnosis: When I run Alcohol 120% The DVD-ROM kept on giving error in the first stage of building image file to my HD. The CD-Rewriter give much less error (both are set to ignore error). But the speed is quite funny. DVD-ROM 16x DVD, is slower than the CD-Rewriter with only 32x reading speed.
