Fallout 3 goty disk 2 help please!

Guys I need your help please. The disk two for fallout 3 is taking very long to load! I tried opening the installer manually and its still taking a long time. I just get the loading cursor over the my computers window when I try to open it and I cant close it. Do I have a faulty disk? Is this suppose to happen? I am so confused right now.

P.S I just discovered that auto run isnt showing up

IDK if my specs will help but i have a GT220 with a Intel Q8300 for a processor.

Yeah, I had the same problem as as you and was just about to make call tech support when the installation went finally through. I have no ideal why it takes that long. This might be something Bethesda needs to look into.

In case anybody is wondering, disk 2 is the DLC content. You put the disk in and it's supposed to load the DLC content, problem is is it just sits there for a long time. You have no idea if the program crashed or what, and there's nothing on the screen or anywhere to indicate what's happening. If you click out of it and try again after waiting awhile you get a message saying the program is already running...and you wait... and wait... and nothing happens...then all of a sudden it's done loading the content. We're talking like 3-5 minutes wait time!

Yeah, after 3 tries I was ready to call Bethesda and ask WTF when the program finally went through. Hmmm....

When I used to have disc problems I'd rip it with Alcohol 120% and load with daemon tools. Infact I have thps4 discs that are scratched.... I just have one on the hdd now lol. I can't get my alice discs to work though =( such a good game.

I've also had this problem. I had to extract the files and run the installer manually.

Hmmm...really sounds like Bethesda needs to look into this. I wonder if it's been addressed on their website.

I'm betting it's a disc problem, probably a batch of bad copies that didn't get flagged or something. Many things could cause this, or they ****ed up when they had the cd/dvd stuff pressed.

Yeah I'm thinking you're rigth about the bad batch of discs. I'll have to take a look at some of the Fallout forums to see if there's any mention of this issue.
