Question

I have a problem installing most of the games i buy. The game instals about 40% then it say Component transfer error

File e:/ Data2.cab

Error: Data error ( cyclic redundancy check )

The data2 is a ziped file so when i tried to unzip it it says the "signature bytes" required for this application are missing. I downloaded the latest version of winzip and winrar but it still doesn't work. I have a widows xp. When I tried it on my friends pc it was working. I even bought another copy of the game but it's still the same problem. So can you please help me

Check the buffer while DXC is burning the disk.

If the buffer drops more than once while burning, that could be the reason why the disks are not playing.

Make sure that the ribbon you use for your ROM drives is a 40 pin ribbon and not an 80 pin ribbon That has been the cause of a few problems.

If you do have a problem with the buffer, also check to make sure that both drives are set to DMA, you have a newer ASPI layer installed, and that the burner is set to Master.

321_Q/A (our Moderator) says "I have seen posts very similar to this last one of yours many times, they do not alarm me any longer."

So I guess it's time for a new Moderator maybe Shouldn't you be alarmed? I post and post but never receive any answers from 321 I email tech support and get a late, bland, response that says [our QA department has found some issues with DXC...try the next version].

At some point, I have to turn up the volume.

In your reply, you offered "If you have a system configuration that doesn't allow you to use DXC, the choices you have are to:

1) Get mad and throw flames

2) Get a refund

3) Work with 321 Studios and all of the very knowledgeable people on this forum to figure out where the problem is, and fix it."

So here I am, not throwing flames (these aren't flames, not even sparks yet).. trying to work with you folks I've posted the same problem over and over with all the details I can imagine I've got the same problem that many other users here have (discs burn but do not play back on many set top machines) Other users are complaining too WHAT IS BEING DONE? WHAT HELP ARE YOU OFFERING? WE HAVE DONE OUR PART We have posted our details, or problems, our frustrations.

Now, 321_Q/A, it's time for the "A" Answers are part of your job Please take a moment and review my system and see if you feel there is a configuration that will not work with DXC I built this machine from the ground up to do this stuff It WORKED GREAT WITH 1.4.1 so I'm hesitant to say it's my system."
