    Every time I install my Sims 3 game, about 5 minutes in, I receive this error:

    "File: D:\Caches\Sunset Valley.objectCache
    Error: Incorrect function."

    I click on "retry", and after a while, this pops up:

    "File: D:\Caches\Sunset Valley.objectCache
    Error: Data error (cyclic redundancy check).

    I don't know what to do. I've tried to install it at least 10 times, and the second error keeps popping up :(. Yes, I am using a legit version of the game, in case you're wondering.
    Installation path with these errors: C:\...\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Caches\Sunset Valley.objectCache

    System specs (sorry if it's a bit extensive):
    OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600)
    Sys. Manufacturer: Toshiba
    Sys. Model: Satellite L505D
    BIOS: InsydeH2O Version 1.10
    Processor: AMD Turion(tm) II Dual-Core Mobile M500 (2 CPUs), ~2.2GHz
    DirectX Version: DirectX 11

    Okay, it is giving you an error that it is conflicting with itself. the error 'incorrect function' means that something is using that file in the way it was not meant to. it may be reading it wrong or not reading it at all. I think that may mean that the disc is faulty. how long have you had it?
