Sorry, very silly question, but just checking that the CD-ROM drive
you are using can read DVDs. It's a DVD reader, not just a CD drive,
correct? (I'd be very surprised if it wasn't, but just making sure...)
Do other DVDs work in the drive? If so, it sounds like you might have
a dud (an incorrectly burned DVD).
