Year 4 Game Crashes...

Right, in year 4, the game crashes when the cutscene shows Manny and the crowd arriving at Rubocava.

It's really annoying and I'd like to know how I can fix this problem.

Btw, I'm running directx 9.0 and using Win XP Pro and yes, my game has been patched.

Edit: I've also tried copying over the .lab files, didn't work. Now, sound in cutscenes have gone choppy, the gamescreen freezes and then crashes to desktop.

Thanks!
Yuri

Oh and it definitely can't be a memory problem. I've 768 mb of ram and it is a lot!

I've also tried using the compability mode(both Win 95 and Win 98). Well, no change. Turning off 3d acceleration proved no results, either.

I also tried moving out the majority of my save files(well, I save a lot and had more than 100 of them) in case it was slowing down the game.

Anyway, I doubt there is anything wrong with the cdrom(unless it's only 1 of the files that's corrupt) as I was able to play the game smoothly and perfectly until Year 4. That was when the cutscenes started crashing(the cutscene that showed Dom being killed and so on),etc.

Btw, I really hope that I won't have to uninstall Directx 9.0. The reason being that I have quite a few other software titles that would complain if I tried to run directx 6.0 on my machine.

Oh well, I'll fiddle around and see what I can do. Hopefully, someone can give me some pointers on how to fix this. ;__;
