Also, are you using any mods?

I'm not tech savy really, so I'm just posting what I thought looked important. I'm not sure what kind of video card I have. I'm just using the stock that came with my laptop (Preseraio CQ62).
What is confusing me, is that I am playing San Andreas just fine, and have been for several weeks. The only thing remotely close to a mod I'm running on SA is the multiplayer server thing, but other than that, I have downloaded zero third party content related to GTA.
I can't even get a game started on GTA III though, so I can't be running mods on it. I also am on an adminstrator account, so..... I'm at a loss.
I got the disc from a friend. He burned it for me (along with Vice City) and VC worked just fine. Hmm..

I don't want to seem like a total dummy, but I've never messed with mods or anything like that, and I have no idea how to install them or anything. In the instructions, it says something about the txd.img file and replacing it with the mod information, or some sh*t like that, and I simply don't know what to do. I'm a dummy
Please help the noob

When I try to extract it to the models folder, it says I need an additional 22 KB of memory for it to work.
Then if I try to flat out copypasta the needed files to the models folder, under the folder it says "Files waiting to be burned" meaning I need to burn them to the disc. Would burning them to the disc work?
If so, how would I go about doing this?

Does that mean you do not have the Original CD? If so, than that is the problem, and the only solution would be to buy a legimate copy-either from Steam or D2D OR from a Retail store such as Wal-Mart(Wal-Mart.com), Target(Target.com), Amazon.com, K-Mart(K-Mart.com), Gamestop(gamestop.com), etc. As if you do not have the Original CD OR a legit Download from Steam/D2D, than you have a illegal version. You have to(MUST) install the game on to your PC Before you can play the game-that is why there are 2 discs(disc 1 is the Install disc and Disc 2 is the Play disc)-All disc 2 does is allow you to play the game, that is also where the Audio files are. Since the game is dirt cheap now(less than $10 brand new), there should be absolutly NO reason to not get a legit copy if you don't already have one. Just a heads up...
Also, according to the Forum rules, GTAForums has a "No-Warez" policy, as seen in the rules Here in the Announcements section. Just a heads up..

Theoretically, you could play GTA III on disk if you had the game installed and copied +txd.img and txd.dir in the models folder. Never tried myself but it should work, but it would have slowdowns since reading is slower on disk.

And for the record, all the files are in there (meaning it has mostly the same folders that are in my VC and SA folders, like models, audio, mss32 or whatever it is.... can't think of anything else right now... but all those folders are in there when I open it.)

|apparently there is a version of GTA III on one CD including audio, legal version.|
Just curious, What version is this? Because there are only two(2) versions for PC-the Original and the Trilogy Pack. I have both versions, and they both have 2 discs for III and VC-one is the Install disc and Disc 2 is the Play disc. and with the Trilogy Pack, SA is the only game that is on 1 disc, and that is because it is a DVD, instead of a CD like III and VC. Here's one version-the Trilogy Pack, and Here's the Original version for PC. Just Curious.
Those are the only two Retail copies-However, the Steam and D2D versions are the only legal Downloadable versions.

Bottom line though, I got it working.
Just finished all the Portland police/fire missions. I always have trouble with the Paramedic missions. Doing them in succession is the thing. My ambulance always gets blown up around level 9ish, so I've decided to wait until Stauton Island since the Triads hate me (I'm on Chaperone right now).
