Question about EA - Electronic Arts Sims: Complete Collection for Windows

2 Answers

When i try to install the first disc of the sims complete collection, its gets to 1% and then a window pops up that says COMPONENT: UIGRAPHICS FILE GROUP: UIGRAPHICCS FILE: F:\SETUP\DATA2.CAB ERROR: DATA ERROR (CYCLIC REDUNDANCY CHECK) I tried the game on two different computers. I've also used the game before on another computer years ago when I first purchased it.

    I tried that, but cancelled it because its a four disc set up, would i just continue to copy all the information from each disc to the same folder and then try installing it?

    Well that doesnt work either, it says theres something wrong in the setup, cabinet file. I think it's hooped! Thanks a million though!

    im guessing there's no way to fix that then?
    the disc doesnt look scratched, it looks brand new.

    you can try right clicking on the cd drive in my computer and then clicking explore . when the new window opens click on any file then press ctrl & a, everything will be highlighted in blue now press ctrl & C then minimise the window and right click on an empty part of your desktop and click new then click folder . Open the new folder and press ctrl & V. This will then copy all the files from the cd to your computer ,when its finished copying them all click on the setup file and try installing it

    you would only have to copy the first disc, but as you got an error from trying to install it from the hard drive then thats no good. You could download the first disc from a torrent and install it that way. Just dont get rid of the original first disc as it will probably be needed to play (to check you have an original) that will still work

Is the disc clean???
Make sure there is nothing on it. You can wash it in hot water and any liquid soap.
Only wash the disc in **ONE** direction and never in circles. Just straight across._______________
Rinse and dry same way.
