    Default Trying to install fs2004 on win10 help needed

    The install stops at GS2vid2.WMV it says there is a disk error.
    I have fs9 installed on win7 using the same disks.
    Is there something I can do to bypass this folder?

    Many thanks

    Have you checked the CDs themselves for dirt, smudges, etc ? Maybe they need a clean with warm soapy water and (of cause) a very soft cloth.

    If cleaning doesn't work, you can have the disk repaired at your local Game store very cheaply:

    In some cases you can have the disk repaired, but not always.

    If, for example, you "stored" the disk on a window sill or under a bright light its possible the foil media inside the disk can break down. Once that foil starts to pit, its impossible to fix it.

    One thing I've done with "high value" or hard to replace disks is apply a light coat of paste car wax and then lightly buff it out to a high gloss. The wax adds a tough outer layer to the disk which can help protect the disk from scratches and dust. I also NEVER leave CDs or DVDs out in the open, I always store them in a dark closet or drawer.

    Scratches can be repaired as long as they aren't too deep, damage to the foil layer is forever.
