Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Try using a cleaner of your cd-rom first..

If that doesn't help, return your XP cd for a replacement.. Looks like it may be corrupted..

I saw what you said.. If you bought it, then return it to the store you BOUGHT IT from and get a replacement!!

I thought I gave very simple instructions the first time.. Hope this is a little clearer!!
