Return them. If they don't pass mediacheck, you might not be able to complete an install. You could check them on a second computer.

You could try installing from them. You might get lucky and only a couple packages that you aren't going to install might be the bad ones.

## EDIT ##

If the install fails, you might end up with an unusable system, until you can get a good set of discs and run second install.
