Cannot Install the Sims 2

\015 I tried to download the Sims 2 onto my Windows computer and it downloaded about 4% and then a little box popped up that said ''A problem occured when trying to transfer the file 'TSDataResSims3DSims08.package' from the media. Do you want to retry to copy the file, or cancel the installation?'' I pressed retry and after a few minutes the same box popped up again. I've tried on many different occasions to download this game and the same message always pops up. What can I do about this?\015

Answers :

Polish the disc with silvo.

mine did the same thing till mum cleaned it for me :D
From which media are you downloading from, a cd, pendrive? If it's a cd, check if there's any scratches on it then wipe it. You may try putting the cd in the fridge for 5 mins. Then u wipe it well again, and try copying again
