My computer crashed 2 weeks ago ...I installed everything on it that was on it before it crashed... When I went to reinstall Sims 2 (was on here before the crash) it gives me this message
"A problem occured when trying to transfer the file 'TSData\Res\Sound\Voice5.package' from the media.
Do you want to retry to copy the file, or cancel the installation?"

I have contacted EA Games but all they give me was a link to download something about a SafeDisk

That didnt work... now I'm really frustrated and at my wits end... Any suggestions or help to be found ?? I'm almost computer stupid but if you need something and tell me where to get it... I can get it... Would hate to go get another new computer since I just got this one in Nov. Its a Dell with Windows XP Home Edition on it. HELP !! :(

usually i get errors like that my cd is dirty. Even with cds that look clean. Try using a non-abrasive soap and then drying it with a non-abrasive material. Or maybe your cd has some mad scratches but i wouldn't think so. and whats that link ea games sent you, post it.

To run dxdiag go to start, run, then type in dxdiag. There should be a series of tests you can run, but this probably will not fix your problem.
