Nero 6 Linux boot error. HELP!

Whenever I try to make a bootable cd I get this error at the boot up screen:

"Image checksum error, sorry..."

I use the isolinux.bin as the boot file and the usual 07c0 and 4 sectors and no emu., but I am always getting this error on every distro I try to make bootable. I also created the .WBT file with Winiso to use as the boot file and place the files as normal onto the cd.

Its driving me crazy and I have wasted so many disks. I think it might be a problem with the latest version of Nero 6 I installed, but the earlier version of Nero 6 worked in this regard(although it had many other problems)

Before anybody asks, no I dont want to burn a straight .ISO.

Anyone got any ideas? I wonder if anybody else has had this error?

try burning at a slower speed. like 8x if you can go that slow, if you can go slower that will be even better. drop it all the way as low as you can go.

some bunrers with some software and media just need to run real slow to work.

No burning slower doesnt work and even if I could burn at slower speeds I wouldnt want to cos I have to burn so many disks that it would take forever.

thanks anyways,
