What does it mean when I get a message saying problems where encountered reading the source file?

by on July 20, 2009

Q: I am trying to install mac OS 9.2 on a computer running mac OS 9.0. When I am installing it a message comes up that says “problems where encountered reading the source file Installation Tome. Installation cannot continue.” Does this mean that its the disk’s fault or do I have to install something else?

    That means there is a problem with the CD/DVD. Most likely a scratch on the disk but it is possible that there is just some dirt on it that can be cleaned off. So you should try using a damp cloth to clean it to make sure the disk is clean.
