I'm not too experienced with this yet, but it'd help if you answered  
a few question:
1)    What kind of computer do you have (processor)?
2)    What is the name of your DVD drive?
3)    Do you have a second cd/dvd drive?
4)    At what step does the error happen?  Also, include the EXACT  
error message.
