On trying to install the game, I get the following error message: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error
- Something is interfering with the setup installer (AntiVirus, Firewall, Windows Update). Try disabling them.
- Reinstall Origin
- Clean out your registry with CCleaner
- Make sure Windows and .Net are current
- Clean the disc
- Use the Digital Download Version from Origin instead of the disc (it’s free if you have the disc)
- Use the patch download if you get this error on installing a patch
