Hello SteveFTM and welcome to G2G!

CRC errors occur when either the disk is damaged/scratched or the drive is having problems reading the disk. Make sure the disk is clean, free of scratches and try using a different drive to install the game.

Hey Steve

Try and copy the disk to your hard drive and then run the installation.
