    Data cyclic redundancy check error when trying to install Sims 3 game in Windows XP

    I have the latest Windows XP SP3 installed in my system and now I am trying to install the Sims 3 game in it and when I do that I get the error message as " Data Error(cyclic redundancy check)" anyone faced this error before? Why I am not able to install the game?

    The Cyclic Redundancy Test is the verification check by which the installer verifies the authenticity of the "to be installed" programs.
    There are a number of situations which are to be blamed for CRC failure.

    Check the media for any physical damage, clean the disk well, dont clean in cyclic order, run cloth streight .

    Check the files of the game installer, they can be damaged.

    Is the SIM3 you are trying to install is a pirated copy, then there is problem and success uncertain.

    Download fresh copy from internet and install.
