Failed MediaCheck

This is a FAQ.

If the discs are burned DAO with padding (possibly just DAO) using  
cdrecord - they will pass the media test. Otherwise they will probably  
fail - because of a bug in the ide-cd driver, not because they are bad.

Something about the drive trying to read beyond the end of the data or  
something.

Anyway - your disks likely are fine - try installing. If they fail, see  
if you can get someone with linux to burn them using cdrecord from the  
cli with the -dao and -pad options.
