Before doing anything else, the best thing to do is to update all the software to the latest versions. In a terminal window:

su -c 'yum update'

Enter the root password when prompted.

The Media Check is oversensitive and will fail many valid discs unless you specify an extra option when booting the disc. The Release Notes have a section on this:
