The Sims 3 CRC error

Post by Jamie9911 on Tue 25 Sep 2012, 15:56

I'm having a problem with my downloads, I've used the links provided here for updating, and the origin automatic update ones, but I keep getting this error:

"CRC error: The file C;\Program files etc etc \deltaBuild0.package doesn't match the file in the setup's .cab file. The medium from which you are running the setup may be corrupted;"

And it just goes on to deltaBuild1 and so on. It's also the same with some of my expansion downloads like Late Night and High End loft stuff, also my Diesel Stuff pack.

I've been downloading this via a download manager and Origins download manager, switched to firefox's download manager and I'm still getting the same error's. I've downloaded this file multiple times but it's always the same.

Could this be a Hard Drive error? All of my files are downloaded, but this is a brand new HDD as of "22/09"

Hello,

You get this error during the file extraction via WinRAR?

If it's the ones I've downloaded from Games4theworld, then it fails to extract, if it's just a DVD mount type, then I get the error when installing.

I found this at another forum, not sure if it works.
But I would give it a try.

Cyclic Redundancy Error’ is usually caused by a registry issue can
usually be fixed with a registry scan. But just in case you can always
try these solutions. Which also can lead you to getting a ‘Disc
Authorization Error’.

You will want to attempt a hard drive
installation of the game. In this process, you copy the game files to
the Desktop, so that the disk, although necessary for running the game,
is not necessary for installation.
1. Right-click the Desktop, select New, and select Folder.
2. Insert the Install Disk into the drive.
3. Exit any auto-play screen that may appear.
4. Open My Computer.
5. Right-click the CD-ROM drive containing the Install Disk and select Open.
6. Click Edit at the top of the window.
7. Click Select All.
8. Click Edit again.
9. Click Copy.
10. Close the window.
11. Right-click the New Folder on your desktop and select Paste. (The game files will now copy.)
12. Once the files from the Install Disk are copied proceed to step 13.
13. Upon completion, remove all disks from any drives.
14. Double-click the Setup folder.
15.
Double-click on the Sims3Setup.exe icon, looks like two silver arrows
and a half-circle on a blue background. (The installation should now
begin.)

2. If you got Sims 3 CRC Error then there is a 94% chance
that your computer has registry problems. To repair Sims 3 CRC error
you need to follow the steps below:

Download a Perfect Optimizer,install this error repair tool.
Click the Repair All Button.It will scan you PC for Free.
Then click the Repair All Button again and your done! It is very easy to repair Sims 3 CRC error.
3.
Download EA download manager [EADM], create an account on there, then
you get your serial key for the game, type it in EA download manager and
it will download the game and install. A CRC error is the DVD Drive
not being able to read the disc properly. It downloads pretty quick. and
anyone else who is having this problem this is the way around. All you
need to do is have an EA account set up, then there is a tab that says
activation, this is where the serial key goes, and its that simple.

4. Run the Windows Defragmenter software on your system. Fragmented hard disk space can cause this error.

CRC errors may also be caused by a hard disk or DVD drive failing or being unable to write consistent data.

If
you have run the Defragmenter software and are continuing to experience
this error, please contact your system’s manufacturer for further
diagnostics.

It appears that in some cases, users that are using
the EA download Manager version of The Sims 3 may experience this error
if their download is paused. To resolve this issue, perform the
following steps:

Log in to the EADM.
Click on the red x in the upper right part of the Sims 3 download to clear the EADM cache.
Re-download The Sims 3; do not pause the download.

However if your games are from here, did you remember to apply the FIX?
