Help me please, someone! Here is the situation: Somehow, whenever I try to install a program from a CD through my DVD-Rom drive, I'm getting an error message telling me that a file within a compressed file on the CD is corrupt, and cannot be transferred. This isn't just happening with one or two CD's I've tried. I've tried a BUNCH and I'm getting the same basic error message from all of them. Here's what I know is NOT the problem: The DVD-Rom drive itself I was getting this problem on an older DVD-Rom drive, so I bought a new one. Same freakin' problem on the new one. The Operating System It was happening with my old install of Windows XP Pro. So, thinking it could be a problem with the OS, I decided to do a complete hard drive format, I deleted the partition, recreated it, re-installed Windows XP...and guess what...SAME PROBLEM!! The CD itself Aside from the fact that I'm getting this error on virtually every CD I try to install a program from, just because I'm anal, I took one of the CD's to work with me today. I tried to install it there and it worked fine. This is something way above my head, folks. I'm currently entertaining the possibility that it could be a problem with my IDE cable connecting the DVD-Rom drive to the motherboard. Would this be a symptom of a bad IDE cable? Other than that, I don't even know where to start to try to diagnose this problem. If any of you can help me out with this, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
