I think with Fedora 9 there must something else I use 82801g ICH 7 and Fedora 8 with no problem
Both Fedora 8 and Fedora 9 do not have a problem with it
Did you do a media check ?

hi ronlau9

I have faced same problem while installing FEDORA 8.
I did not go for media check because i have installed fedora 8 as well as fedora 9 many times in other PC using same DVD and there i got no problem.Therefore it seems to me that media is proper.

Whether there is some driver CD as a solution?

This missing driver problem is displayed while installing Open Solaris -----(Nexenta OS-alpha 7) not with fedora8 or 9 as i mantioned above

The fact that you can use the media on other computer means that it was correct for those computers.
But CD and DVD readers are not all totally the same , I mean the ones we use at home . Professional are the same
That is why if you burn a CD Or DVD on a computer it dos not mean that it
also works on a other
So the problem can also be that a specific reader can not read it
The laser beam has a tolerance , I do not if this the correct English expression
