Disk error 32 / 80 on Boot CD for Fedora

I get this code when trying to install Fedora installation disk 1(not DVD) (which I downloaded from ), I burnt the image to CD in Windows XP using Nero twice by using the burn image to disk option, not just burning the single image to the disk as it is. I have changed and cleared the BIOS to boot CD-ROM as primary boot device, this part works fine. I have tried to boot from the CD with 4 CD Drives (CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, DVD-ROM/CD-RW and CD-RW), I get this when I try to boot:

Boot from CD :
ISOLINUX 3.11 2005-09-02 Copyright (c) 1994-2005 H. Peter Anvin *wait a few seconds*
isolinux : Disk error 80 (32 on another drive), AX = 4209, drive 9F

Boot failed : press a key to retry... *and it does it again when I do*

I have done a checksum of the image file and it was fine, I burnt the image to CD twice using standard Sony 700mb Disks and both are the same, so I cleared the CMOS and changed the boot devices so that CD was primary again and same happened, I tried 2 CD-drives from another computer but both didn't work also.

SystemType: X86-based PC means that you're using x86 computer, not 64bit, but you have downloaded Fedora for 64bit computers. You should download x86 version.

Somehow I don't think you know what you are talking about. It is x86 based.. 64bit processor, it isn't currently running a 64bit operating system but I'm pretty sure that means I still can run a 64bit x86 version of Linux.
