1. Deffective CD-ROM drive, or at least, a CD-ROM drive that is unable
to read the the media that is burned from your burner
2. Deffective Ram. Test this first by running memtest from a boot cd.
If memtest can run and doesn't find any errors within approx 10 minutes
of running, replace the CD-ROM drive.
