Exclamation COD4 installation issue

Hey all,
I've used this website before to help me but never registered, now i finally need some help i cant find!
I recently reformatted my desktop and put xp home back on.
I had no problems reloading xp, using other discs or installing programs.
When i put my cod4 disc in it autoloads fine i click install and it goes through the
C:\... main\iw_1.iwdC:\... main\iw_2.iwd
C:\... main\iw_3.iwd
files etc all the way to C:\... main\iw_11.iwd where i encounter the problem
once i hit that file on the install it comes up with an error.

"Error 1305. Error reading from file D:\Setup\data\main\iw_11.iwd. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it."

On the advice of some friends i tried re installing 5 times ive tried installing on my laptop and it came up with the same error. I also tried ripping to an .ISO file and installing via daemon tools, but it froze on roughly the same percentage as when i attempt an install.

Please post back here whenever you can i could use some help haha ,

Thank you in advance, Liam.

EDIT: Just a thought, if anyone reads this that isnt registered and cant post but can help please feel free to add me on msn at drumsareftw@hotmail.com or email me. Thanks again.

Sounds like a scratched disk to me. Check the surface carefully, try using a disk cleaner. Maybe you can borrow a copy from a buddy to reinstall using your key.

If you add your location (user CP), there may be someone local to you that can help you out.
