Installation Failure

I have two drives in my computer, a dvd-rom and a cdrw.  When I put the install disc in the dvd-rom, install shield pops up, and it freezes once the first green progress indicator shows up.  And then this message shows up:

-------------------------------------------------------

Grand Theft Auto:Vice City

 

An error (-5003:  0x8004ace4) has occured while running the setup.

 

Please make sure you have finished any previous setup and closed other applications.

If the error occurs, please contact your vendor:  Rockstar Games

(http://www.rockstarnorth.com).

 

Detail >>

 

Error Code: -5003 : 0x8004ace4

Error Information:

>SetupDLL\SetupDLL.cpp (938)

PAPP:Grand Theft Auto:Vice City

PVENDOR:Rockstar Games (http://www.rockstarnorth.com)

$7.1.100.1248

@Windows XP (2600) IE 6.0.2600.0

----------------------------------------------------------

 

Okay, so I tried my cd-rw drive.  I get component transfer errors:

----------------------------------------------------------

Component Transfer Error

 

Component:  GTA:  Vice City

File Group:  App Executables

File:  E:\data2.cab

Error:  Incorrect Function

------------------------------

Component Transfer Error

 

Component:  GTA:  Vice City

File Group:  GTA Vice City

File:  E:\gta-vc.exe

Error:  Incorrect Function.

 

------------------------------------------------------------

 

I bought this from circuit city, it's not a burned or downloaded version.  WTF is going on!?  Rockstar's creativity never fails to amaze me, but what kind of idiots are programming their software?  

 

Thanks for all your help!

Very intresting.....

 

try copying the contents of the discs to your hard drive, then run the setup.exe on your hard drive. It shouldnt ask for the disc at all.

Tried that.  Get's around 1,500 bad sectors when ripping from the dvd rom, and around 40 bad sectors from the cdrw drive.  :(  Any other guesses?

 

Thanks!

When I origionally bought and installed the game it worked fine untill I installed an updated version of the game and the game started crashing everytime I loaded a saved game. So I tried to reinstall and I got this error; So I tried completly uninstalling the game then installing it again got the same error.
