I get this message when trying to install Oblivion, anyone know how to help?



It just completely stops and will not continue further and loses everything before that it had installed.

Yeah from the CD. I've only ever installed this game once before when I first bought it.

I could be reading this wrong but I think you have traces of the old copy on your computer still and it's fucking it up. Either find a repair tool or seek and destroy it.

Haven't found a fix per se, but an explanation of the error:

" CRC means cyclic redundancy check. when you get a CRC error, that means the file on the hard drive after copying is not the same as the one on the original media. ...

One very common reason for this is a faulty optical drive. They go bad almost as often as mice.

One way to test your drive is to create a large zip file (&gt;300MB), burn it to a CD (preferably on a different computer), test it on that computer to make sure the file will unzip properly. Then drop the Cd into optical drive you are testing and unzipping it. If you get a CRC error or similar error during the unzip process, then the drive is probably bad. Not a guaranteed test.

One other common cause of CRC errors is via downloads: warez, or d2drive "

Drive as in DVD ROM drive? So if it's the drive I should only have to replace that right?

or a scratch on your cd, and your reader is having issues reading it. It would cause a crc error.
