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.
Yeah remember the PS2 problem and gold covered discs? Oh man that almost started riots! lol naw but stuff happens, and we can't do jack. That's why I like to rip to hdd, better install times and if I choose to re-install the os (for whatever reason) my favorite games install fast. =P It doesn't bother me at all. I even have a backup of my steam folder. =) I don't like to wait for downloads.

Just read this on Bethesda's fourm - Game of the Year Edition - Bethesda Game Studios Forums

Some folks are reporting issues with installing the extra content on the second disk. Probably has to do with AV or some other background app or a combo of things. If you are having issues with the disk not being read or seen, you can try just letting it sit for about 10 to 15 minutes and the disk will usually start up the install.

However, the quickest way in the long run to get the content installed is to use Safe Mode for the install of the second disk.
Oooooo Kay

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

I have the GOTY Digital edition and when installing the DLC part it takes forever to start.

And its an executable, not CD so I don't think its the discs.

Yeah, the DLC content does take forever to load, even with the disc, which I have. There was a post somewhere here about it, but I don't feel like looking for it as it was a while ago.

LOL it's on page 1 of this thread - Fallout 3 goty disk 2 help please!

win 7

thankyou wishmaster, its not a disk problem its an operating system problem.
and after (SOO LONG) it installs it and the pit and all them still wont work anyway, radio signals wont show up, at the end of the game u dont get woken up and do anchorage or watever its called, cant even go to the pit.
now i had the dlc working on vista the went to 32 bit windows seven and they suddenly stopped working and its because of games for windows live (u should all no fallout uses GFWL right?) fallout uses GFWL to acces the dlc content and merge it with the origenal game, but with windows 7 it wont do that properly for some reason but when i find a fix ill post it.
unless someone els does.

If you're having issues with the DLC content showing up, try this....

Put the disc in the CD/DVD rom and and click "Run Falloutlauncher.exe"

The Launcher Screen will apear

Click "Data Files"

and you'll get this screen

Now make sure all the boxes are checked and your DLC content should be present in the game.

Also, make sure you're logged into GFWL to get the 1.7 patch update.

Let me know if this helped.
