I/O Error Installing a File

  BGL 11:41 27 Mar 2007


I'm trying to install a programme from CD and each time the installation gets so far then I get an error message "I/O error occurred while installing a file. This is normally caused by bad installation media or a corrupt installation file".

I've tried the CD on another PC and it installs fine so it can't be the CD.

Any ideas?

The PC is a Dell running XP.
