Angry Cannot install centos linux 5

I have been trying to install the isolinux dvd that I burnt but keep getting the follwing response:

isolinux:disk error 32, AX=42C0, Drive 9F.
In fact I burnt 3 disks and they all give the same response.
I would appreciate any help I can get.
Thank you so much.

Clearly there's a hardware issue with the CD-drive

Try burning the CD once again, but burn at the SLOWEST speed possible (ideally, burn at 1x). In my experience, this will make the read less likely to fail.

Or you could try to cleaning your cd drive. This could help.
