Error 1305. Error reading from file.

When I try to install Call of Duty World at War I get the following:-   Error 1305 Error reading from file.

On my brand new computer I have windows 7.

I've tried to install from a clean Boot and from The compatibility troubleshooter specifying XP service pack 2 and then 3.

I've inserted the disk into both the CD/DVD drive trays. Thet are :- Optiarc DVD RW AD-7260S ATA Device    and     Optiarc DVD RW AD-7260S SCSI CdRom Device.

 I dropped the resolution to 1024 X 768.

Apart from Microsoft Office 2010 installed and the McAfee Firewall and Anti Virus diabled I cannot think of any compatibility issues. 

I did install dotNetFx40_Full_setup.exe  after a few failed CoD installs.

I've got loads of free memory (8Gb) and Hard Drive space.

Is there anything you can suggest.

Hi,

You may try these:

Step 1: Run the setup file as an administrator.

a.    Right Click on the setup file.

b.    Select run as administrator.

c.    Then follow the wizard.

Step 2: Try to install the game in a different folder or on a different drive and check if you are able to install.

Step 2: If not, check if you are able to install the game in  new user account.
