When I try installing Sims 3 (base game) "cyclical redundancy check" error pops up

★★★★ Newbie

What is the cyclical redundancy check error and how do i fix it?

I'm not the best with computers, so can you give me the most dumbed-down fix for this?

 

 

My disk is scratched a little, but that never affected anything in the last computer that I installed it in. And I believe that the errors shows up when the object cache (i dont know what that is either DStandard smile for Sunset Valley is being installed/downloaded.

Thank you! I just have one question on one of the solutions.

It says that I can get a deownloadable copy if I enter the serial number of my physical game. Any idea what page I have to go to to do that?

You need Origin and you should be able to to redeem it in the client. Not sure where since I don't use Origin myself.
