Did you check md5sum before burning the CD's? Or is it retail?

madjoe 03-22-2002 12:46 AM

nah i didnt check them, i guess i should, i figured the image was cool cause i had no problems burning but i did forget to check those this time. ill do that and see what happens.

yeah i checked it and it was correct, so its not the CD.

Just because the md5sum matches dosn't mean you don't have a bad cd, try burning another copy and see if it works.
