I'm trying to install Gears and it keeps saying "error 1350. Error reading D:\program files\microsoft games\gears of war\wargame\cookedpc\maps\SP_caves\SP_caves_script _5.war.comp. Verify that the files exist and you can access them." about half way through the installation

I did go to the file location and the files do exist and are installed, but it keeps persisting on this.

The disc has no scratches or cracks and is in brand new condition. Tried to install the game in two different drives and the same error appears.

Just bought the thing too.

Specs:
GPU:ATi Radeon 4870X2(defualt clocks)
CPU:AMD Athlon 6000+ X2 @3.0Ghz(defualt clocks)
OS:Vista Ultimate x64 SP1
RAM: 4GB OCZ Reaper (4x1Gb)(defualt clocks/timings)
PSU:OCZ StealthxStream 600w

Guess their was a hidden scratch around the center of the disc. Could be the cause. Ugh...
