Problem Installing Mandrake 10.


Well I don't get very far in the installation process because while it's scanning USB ports, drives and such at the start of the installation, I get an error saying "I can't access a Mandrake Linux Installation disc in your CD-ROM Drive."

I really new to this, so is there something I'm doing wrong here?

You appear to have either 1) a weird CD-ROM drive, or 2) A bad CD. What kind of drive do you have?

It's just a Samsung sc- 140 CD-ROM drive; I checked on the Mandrake site and it said it was compatible.

It's probably the CD or ISO download. Either that or a bug I don't know of.

I redownloaded the ISO from a different site and tried again but the exact same thing happened?

Does anyone know what this could mean?
