    Thats really an annoying problem. I mean you bought the game, you got it delivered after so many days, your excited to play abut yo get error while installing. Lets find out the fix for this. For your information, CRC stands for "cyclic redundancy error" that occurs usually while copying files on Windows system. And as you said that you got the problem while installing the game with DVDs you received, sorry to say but i guess your DVDs are scratched or faulty. :-\ Another reason for this could be your DVD drive.

    Lets work around this issue. You need to try out your Max Payne 3 DVDs on any another PC. If you have any other laptop or Desktop, try installing on the same. If it works, you should be happy that your DVDs are good, no problem. And if you get the same problem than you will have to contact the retailer from where you bought the game.

    In another Scenario, and if there is no problem while installing on another system than probably problem will be with your dvd rom drive. You need to uninstall it form device manager, install it again, update the rom drivers and try installing the game again. Also it will be good if you remove it from cabinet, clean it with soft clean cloth and fix it back again.

    There are many reasons for CRC error. People face it while copying something from FTP, removable drives, CD/DVD, downloaded files, etc. In your scenario its completely related to the DVD drive or the DVDs. Above solution by 'online' is absolutely correct. You should go for it.

    Am not playing this game, will order one copy for me next week. But i request and i wish gamers wont get CRC error with downloaded copies of Max Payne 3 because if they get the same, that means there downloaded copy is corrupted. and what if a downloaded copy that is of 35GB gets corrupted.
