Exclamation "Unable to find medium with live File System" error in Ubuntu Installation.

I had been trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 after formatting my machine. When i select install of the welcome screen, the logo blinks for few minutes and then displays a error as

Unable to find medium with live File System
Then goes to busy box. What is the problem, suggest me a solution please!!

"The same thing appears with Ubuntu 8.10, which i was using before!!"

Bad CD?

Just a few questions.

Did you md5 checksum the image you downloaded, and if so set the CD to burn at a slow speed?

I have had a similar problem twice, once i downloaded a corrupt image, and the second time the .iso was good, but I burned it at max speed and that sometimes makes for a bad install CD.
