which environment are you in while you try to install?? windows or linux??? and if you are in the second ,when the disk is in cdrom, under terminal ,try to this command:

mount /dev/(your cdrom driver's name) /mnt/cdrom ,may be it works, and if you are in the windows, perhaps you have to check your cdrom driver will work properly

Did you create the ISOs? Or did you buy it? If you indeed downloaded the ISOs and burnt the cds, you have to check the following.

1) Compare the MD5SUMs of the files before burning them

2) You should choose the option 'Create CD from an ISO image file' option that is available in ur CD creating software like Roxio, Nero, etc.,

Let us know what you did?

try burning at a slower speed or burning it on a cd-rw cd. I had a similar problem and the cd-rw disc did the trick - then a month later, my cd rom drive died, lol.
