I recently upgraded from windows XP to windows 7. Everything installed fine. I was going to install COD 4 MW and disk loaded fine and begane to install, but got error message:
Error 1305.Error reading from file
E:\Setup\Data\main\video\scoutsniper_load.bik. Verify that the file exist and you can access it.
The file is on the cd and the cd loads fine and installs fine on my laptop with windows 7 on it. I have tired updating everything but no luck. Keep getting same error code and forced to stop install. Can anyone help me.
Hi,Try copying the contents on the hard drive and then try to install and check if it helps.
This problem may occur if any of the following conditions are true:
There is a problem with the CD.
• There is a problem with interfering or conflicting software.
• There is a problem with the connection to the installation point where you are installing (for example, a network drive).
• There is a configuration or hardware problem with your CD-ROM drive.
A) Clean and Examine the CD
If you have problems installing the program from the CD, the CD may be dirty or damaged.
Use a CD-ROM cleaning kit, or gently wipe the silver side of the CD-ROM with a soft, lint-free cotton cloth. Do not use paper. Paper can scratch the
plastic and leave streaks. When you clean the CD-ROM, wipe from the center of the disc outward. Do not use a circular motion.
If the disc still does not perform correctly, clean the disc by using warm water or a CD-ROM cleaning kit. Dry the disc thoroughly and then test the disc again.
B) Put the computer in Clean Boot State
A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts. The following link has steps showing how to perform clean boot.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135
