Unhappy Error - Disk 3 install...Cannot open certain files

I am trying to install the newest version available of Fedora from redhat's site. I am trying to install everything option. i get to disk 3 and i have tons of problems. It says "error - the package ttfonts-zh_cn-2.14-4 cannot be opened. this is due to missing file or perhaps a corrupt package. if you are installing from cd media this usually means the cd media is corrupt, or the CD drive is unable to read the media." then it asks to try again.

Just only has an OK button. There is NO option to skip this file. I redownloaded the the ISO 3 times and burnt it each time. And i did the md5sum checks and they all come out legit. I even tested the CDs before i isntalled them. But i keep getting stuck on disk 3...and its usually always different spots. Its never the same file twice. I dont understand. Sometimes it will just go ahead with it once i click ok but most of the time it just stops.

I also went and just didnt install that file..but then it gets stuck on another one. Hell, i even swapped out the CD rom just because it might have been that and tried different CDs and different CD burners...

anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advanced.

This is what i did. i downloaded the disk again and burnt it. Rebooted my windows box and just to testing if teh CD was failed...

So i just kept rotating all of the bad disk 3s and eventually it just picked up the files and installed it. Fedora is up and running!
