when i try to install Age of Empires 2 age of kings, it works until it tries to write to the file, "graphics.drs". graphics.drs goes from 8% complete and still going when it gets to 35% complete, but when it gets to 35% complete, it stops for a while then brings up the error message, "unable to write to the file "graphics.drs" please make sure you have enough hard disk space and that the file is not in use.
i dont think it is in use as i never opened it, just put in the disk and tried to install, i have 2.3 gigs left on my hard disk. and it only requires 126 megabites.
help me please anyone!
cheers.

have you tried installing the games on any other computer to see if the Game installer is not having any problems.

I had this problem as well, is the disk scratched and what OS are you using? Also what version of AoK are you installing?

If it works in another machine then I don't think it's the CD. Maybe try a cleaner for the CD drive to see i that works for you.

Ethier your CD drive needs cleaning or replaced.

A CD-ROM drive is not expensive (about $10, $20 for CD-RW) if you need to replace it.

surface scratches are fine, it's the deep ones you need to worry about.
