are scratches probably responsible for a liveCD going bad?

My MEPIS liveCD is scratched all over, because I'm clumsy and tend to drop discs easily. Is that the most likely reason why I am suddenly getting cloop error messages (I don't recall getting them before) and why the CD has recently been refusing to reinstall MEPIS on the same HD partition?

That'd be my guess.
