Its either a problem with the disc or your actual DVD-ROM, you could try updating the drives firmware.

Make sure the disc isn't scratched or anything either, that could be why you're getting the error. Also, make sure you have a legit version of the game, if you bought it off eBay or something, make sure It's a real copy of the game, a fake could have missing files or anything.

Make sure you have enough free space on the drive to which you are installing the game. You need the space for the game + some aditional space. Try instaling at a friends PC also, to see if the disc is maybe at fault.
