That looks like plain hardware error.
So either your CD Drive is going south (replace it...), and/or the CD
you have burned is not good enough (either the media itself is of poor
quality/cheap, and/or you have written to it with too high a speed.)

So I would:

- burn a new CD, at a very low speed.
- if that doesn't work, try that CD in a different drive/computer, to
see if it works any better, so you can figure out whether your CD drive
is at fault or not.
