Have you tested your media?

Comment 2 Nicolas Proton 2002-06-06 16:33:56 UTC

or may be i have to burn a new cd with a slower speed ?
or change the kind of my cd ?

Seriously it could be any of the above.
Were all your CDs bad, or just 1?

Comment 4 Nicolas Proton 2002-06-07 07:47:29 UTC
no just 1 cd is bad, the first one.
i will try with a new iso image file.

Comment 5 Nicolas Proton 2002-06-13 10:01:58 UTC
I got a new iso image file and burnt the cd with low speed , and now it works 

Thanks a lot.
