You did burn the ISO image? How did you download the ISO image? You did verify the ISO download? If not then you can use 'md5sum' along with the 'some_ISO_file.md5' available at the same site, that you can use to locally verify that ISO is valid;
Which program did you use to burn the ISO image to DVD? I like to recommend for Microsoft Windows user;
Imgburn <- 'ImgBurn is a lightweight CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application that everyone should have in their toolkit!' + Freeware
As Randicus Draco Albus recommends to burn at a lower burn speed, I burn most at 4X and of course a few coasters are created over time.
' technique can be used to check your ISO DVD image. Some users will rely on the disk burn program to verify but this is not always reliable. You can use the above linked technique to use 'md5' or the 'compare' technique. You need to be aware of 'padding' that some burn programs will use to fill out thus creating a shown invalid burn when in effect the DVD may be used.
