    I have previously Installed The Sims Complete Collection on this computer. It worked just fine. I uninstalled it for awhile and now, upon reinstalling, I can't.
    When it gets to needing the second disk, I put it in, click OK and it loads for a bit. Then a Setup folder pops up with a WinRAR archive in it. I click on that and get an error message of :

    D:\Setup\data3.cab
    The archive is either in unknown format or damaged.

    Since its successfully installed before, why is it having trouble now?

    :(

    maybe the disk is scratched or something or perhaps the game did not uninstall compleatly the first time.

    More than likely the disk is scratched/worn. However, it is possible that the old files may still be in your system and causing this error. This sometimes happens to me if the old files are not completely deleted.
