  1. I've been trying to install vice city for a while on my pc but when i get half way through (with radio stations) or near the end (without radio stations) an error comes up and it says: component:GTA:Vice City :confused:
    File:???
    Catastrophic Failure

    i've tried changing my cd drive setting to PCO-only and Emulating the game with alchohol 120% but it still doesn't work. can anyone help? thanks in advance.

    You do have a legit copy right

    The cd may be dammeged or scrached, that may cause such a problem

    instead of burning the 'image' file, tell him to burn you the actual file on a 'data' cd so that way you can 'mount' the image on ur pc. Then maybe it'll work.
