you might try verifying that system you are getting error message on
has a good cd/dvd drive.

burn another dvd at at least 4 speeds slower.

if runs ok, bad drive.

if still fails, bad drive.

another way you can check is to pull iso on system you are having
problem with and burn dvd.

if you get error, get a new drive.


peace out.
