Sims 3 Windows 8 Install

Hi, I am trying to install Sims 3 via disc on my new Windows 8 laptop after my old one broke. However it comes up with an error message after the installation is 3/4 of the way finished. 

 

F:\gamedata\shared\packages\fullbuild2.package 

Data error cyclic redundancy check

 

Does anyone have any idea how I can install the game? 

 

Thanks.

Re: Sims 3 Windows 8 Install

I recently bought a new machine with Windows 8 OEM on. I also had the 'FullBuild1.package' CRC error. I went through the list of solutions on this thread http://sims3.crinrict.com/en/2011/03/error-cyclic-redundancy-check.html - when I got down to copying the Sims3 data from the disc to the computer it rendered a read-error on the same file - which means it's a problem with the physical disc - I took it out and realised there was some dirt on it. Cleaned, and it installed perfectly fine.
