Software not found by the suse setup, please help thanks

Hi, let me explain the situation:
I was planning for a dual boot system
athlon64 3500+
2GB ram
Asus A8N SLI motherboard
Asus EAX850 256MB
1 200GB western digital
1 160GB Western digital
1 Plextor DVDR
1 Toshiba DVD

Anyway I installed Windows XP on a partition on the 200GB disk
and quick formated a partition for linux

I installed the suse linux 32bit version (Stupid mistake) and all was fine untill the download for the 64bit version was completed, I burned it with nero onto a DVD, I didnt checksum the image but everything seem ok.

So then from the windows computer management I deleted the partitions of linux and qucik formated the new empty partition.

I then booted from the new 64bit version dvd
All was fine untill setup afte determining the partitioning to be done prepared to examine what software was to be installed gave me this message
"No software found at cd:///;devices=/dev/hdc,/dev/ndd"

I blamed the dvd so I burnt a new one from the same image, same result...

Any ideas, should I download the image again or am I making the wrong kind of dvd

Thanks for your help

it depends, if you want to use linux to create the dvd initially, then that would be a good start.

Could be a bad downloaded image.
