Angry CRC error?!?!?

OK well lately whenever I try in install a program I have been getting this "CRC error" and will not properly install. So I reformatted my hdd and when I was installing a program for my soundcard and it came up with the same thing!!!! This is exacly what it says-

"CRC error:The file C: program files\creative\SBAudigy2ZS\GSDemo\GSDemo.exe dosent match the file in the setups .cab file. The medium from which you are running the setup may be corrupt; contact your software vendor."

But like I said before it does this for any program I try to install. I would greatly appreciate any help!

CRC stand for Cyclic Redundancy Check.


Basically its a bad file.


Try getting the program online and see if that helps.

Oh sorry I ment CD drive or RW.

Your Drive is giving you problems.

If you have a spare try that. Or you can try to clean the drive.
