Alright, my computer is VERY new and I don't see why it's getting this problem. For some reason, every ubisoft game I try to install that is "rescent" in specific, rainbow six vegas and dark messiah. I get a message saying "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.".
This happens 100% of the time when I'm about 3/4 through the installation and the ".cab" files are being installed. I've tried going to the windows site and used this walkthrough: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/891894

It didn't help at all, still have the same problem. I can install any other games like BF2, BF2142, Oblivion, etc.
This is a screenshot of the error, beware it's a pretty big picture:

Vegas and Dark Messiah are both on Dual Layer DVDs if I'm not mistaken.

You can try to see if you could update the firmware of your DVD-ROM.
