Hi all and Help!
Have been trying to install Call of Duty and keep getting this error"An I/O error occurred while installing a file.This is normally caused by bad installation media or corrupt installation file"
I put the disk into my other computer and it fires up straight away with no errors.I have just done a clean install ,so there should be no conflicts with other software.Any other software works fine in the cd rom.Details of my system are as follow:
AMD XP 2500
Winfast A170 graphic(absolute crab)
Win XP ,SP1,onboard sound,onboard lan.....ect
Have gone to Gigabytes page and got the latest drivers but didn't make any difference.Could someone please point me in the direction of a fix for this problem because i have no idea and it really is starting to piss me off.

.........and yes! i feel much better.
I don't feel that this is the right place for profanity but maybe that's just my opinion.

Since the mobo is dead I'll have to say this posthumously
I reckon that error was a RAM timing / overclocked mobo instability / dodgy mobo issue. It has nothing to do with the CD-Rom etc
I had the same problem on my old KT7 board. It just would not install certain programs (particularly WinXP) unless a I had absolutely bare minimum configuaton - ie 1 dimm, nothing overclocked, default everything in BIOS etc etc. Temperamental mobotherboard if you ask me - didn't like working at anything other than the lowest / default BIOS/FSB/memory settings.
