Hello.

Try installing it in safe mode, this will help rule out other applications
interfering with the install.

To do this reboot your computer and press the F8 key several times just
before you would normally get the Windows XP boot screen. You'll then be
presented with a menu, choose safe mode and press enter.

Your machine will then loadup in safe mode, with the bare minimum it needs
to work, so yes it will look a little strange. Hopefully the Sims 2 will
then install properly. Reboot your machine to put it back into the normal
mode.

If you get the same error, it could be due to the disc itself, quite often
discs can work in some drives and not in others, getting a replacement would
be the way to go here, or even running a lens cleaning through your drive.
