I tried to install simcity 4 to get into it again, and I am having a problem installing it. It keeps getting stuck on simcity_1.dat

Does anyone know why this would be happening? and if not, a file structure so I could possibly install it myself?

if you are installing from CD, the problem is probably dirty or damaged disks.  You have to take what measures you can to fix the disk surface which may be scratched or just dirty.  Always work from the centre of the disk towards the edge and never rub along the grooves.  Use a chamois or soft, lint-free cloth (dry).


If you are installing from a digital download, you may have run out of disk space.  When was the last time you did maintenance on NTFS?
