Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hi friends,

I have installed windows home with sp2 on my machine. Yesterday I tried to install the game maxpayne 2 but I failed as the installation ended up in an error. The screenshot of the error is attached below:

Component transfer error


The message reads as:

Component transfer error


File: Main

Error: Data error (Cyclic redundancy check).

Can anyone please tell me why am I getting this error? I am using ATI AIW 9800 pro.

Please guide me so I can remove this error and play the game. I am anxiously waiting for your suggestions.

Regards and best wishes.

Maxpayne 2 component transfer error

I think you tried to install maxpayne 2 by using CD or DVD.
This is a common problem that occurs when the CD or DVD has scratches or corrupted. Clean the DVD or CD and use it. I think from this you can over come your problem. If it still doesn't work try to copy CD or DVD to your local hard drive then try to install it by using that copy.
I think this will help you for overcome your problem

The error Cyclic Redundancy Check denotes a corrupted file. Thus, the problem is probably with your disk installer of Maxpayne 2.

How do files in a disk get corrupted?

1. The disk you are using has scratches that rendered the files imbedded on it corrupt and unreadable. If this is the case, you may try cleaning your disk with soap and water and a soft cloth. Dry it completely then try the installation again. If the scratches in your disk are too much, then cleaning it might not really work and there would be nothing more you can do about this problem. You might have to get another copy of the installer disk, and make sure this time that you will keep it from scratches.

2. If you are using an installer burned into a CD, there must have been an error when burning the files into the disk. The files must have been burned too fast. In this case, I would recommend you purchase only original disks. Copying any digital files with no permission from the copyright owner is illegal. So is buying illegally copied disks.

Hope this helps.
