I've heard that having hardware acceleration on full can sometimes cause the game to crash with an error about sound files.
Try lowering the hardware acceleration for your audio hardware down a bit by going Start -> Run -> Type "dxdiag" -> Go to the sound tab then turn Hardware acceleration down to at least "Basic Acceleration".

Let us know how you go.

morrowind probs

hey,
thanks for the reply........however after going thru all the recommended solutions, none seemed to fix the issue. I decided that i would then turn my attention back to oblivion, started playing then it froze, many times. Re-installed only to get to the end of the install and another error message "data8.cab" not allowing for final install.
not sure where to go from here
any idea's?
