maybe they got written wrong. it happens, it's normal. did you tell your cd writer program to check the written data? if not, always do it. it does not takes long , it saves you from headache.

Hello,

Where the downloaded files iso files and did you burn them as such? At what speed did you burn the CDs? In the past I've had similar problems with some downloaded CD images when they were burned at a high speed. Burning them at the lowest speed possible solved the problem for me. Some CD/DVD drives don't read 'home-burned' CDs well but most of the time burning at low speed gives better results.

Kind regards,

Eric
