Were you burning it to a *DVD*-R?  It is NOT a CD image.  You need two

1) A DVD burner (as opposed to a CD burner).
2) A DVD-R (as opposed to a CD-R).

Make sure you have the proper hardware and blank media.

Also: did you download the md5sum file?  Use that to do a check of the
md5sum to make sure your ISO file is not broken.
