Check if your cd has any scratches, you could probably find somewhere to download the one file, or use a torrent, it is illegal, but just download the cd files or the installation, and use the cd after that...

oh, nvm it's a installation error, you could go back to the store and get a refund and get another cd :S

or, you could go into your folder and then delete ALL EA games files, because you could've had it before and then corrupted it, and it wont respond

This may not work, depending on the security features to the disk, but trying copying the contents off the disk to a folder and running the installation from there.

The problem is caused (mostly) due to a corrupt disk which may be the case here as well, even if you can not see the physical signs of damage. If this is the case then I'm afraid the only option for you is to replace the disk.
