Problems with instalation

I'm trying to install GTA IV but it show me a message after a while which says:
Data error (cyclic redundancy check)

I tried with an another dvd but it says the same thing.

The two dvds are original and the pc is new.

Check if the DVDs are dirty or clean. If they're dirty, exchange them. Data error might be from dirty discs (files can't be read correctly).

Take it back to the store and get a new copy, sadly no other way around, the slightest bit of damage on the disc will make the installer refuse at certain points, so yeah, need a new copy.

I have to tell you, maybe its late but still xd
I just had this problem for the last hour. Fixed it, how?
Took window cleaner, smooth cloth and gently wiped the disc. Now it works WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
