Are the CentOS and fed 10 DVDs of a similar type, and different to the
DVD you used with fed 9?
Or is your CentOS on CDs?
A common problem I have is that some DVD drives really don't like some
brands of disc. Some have issues with DVD-R's, some have issues with
DVD+R's, some seem to be completely random.
ymmv, but if the failing discs are the same brand, it's probably your
cheapest quickest solution to reburn on a different brand and see if
