So I buy this game Crysis, a bit later than most people.
I try to install the thing, it tells me "error 1335: level3.cab is corrupt"
So okay, I check the forums, and lots of people have a similar problem. Seems I have to copy that file to another computer and bring it to my own on a flash drive, and in the meantime copy the entire DVD contents to my computer, then overwrite the offending file and install from my HD. So that's the plan.
So I pop Crysis back into the CD/DVD Rom, now the thing won't even READ the disc. I throw in some other DVDs, it won't read that either. I check the forums, again people have had this same **** problem.
So what, I try a system restore to the time before I got the game. I also try to uninstall my DVD rom drivers and have windows re-install them. NO DICE. This dumb piece of **** ****ing game has apparently made my DVD Rom not read DVDs anymore. There's no other explanation. I barely used my computer all weekend, didn't use any wierd stuff. Didn't visit any websites I don't normally or download anything wierd. Watched some Stargate DVDs right before I bought this game. It can't be just a coincidence that all of the sudden, my DVD rom craps out just as I buy this dumb game. Not likely.
Anyone have a similar experience? And if so did anything help???
This piece of **** game is going back to London Drugs that's for damn sure.
