Hello, have you tried the all the sugestions mentioned above?
You might also try opening the DVD in Windows Explorer, find the install.exe,setup.exe, or something similar, right click on it and Run in Compatibility mode for Vista SP2 or XP SP3.

I'm not trying to insult peoples intelligence, but how can the OP install updates for a game that won't install?


Quote:
When you attempt to install one of the products listed at the beginning of this article, you receive the following error message Error 1310. Error writing to file: file name. System error 1307. Verify that you have access to that directory.


where file name is the path and file name for a Microsoft Office file, for example: Error 1310. Error writing to file: C:\WINNT\system32\C_1252.NLS. System error 1307. Verify that you have access to that directory.


-or-
Error 1310. Error writing to file: C:\WINNT\system32\FM20.DLL. System error 1307. Verify that you have access to that directory.

i know this link is for microsoft office, but the way to fix it is exactly the same as any file that won't install "Error 1310. Error writing to file" error message when you install Office 2000
