installing windows 7 64 bit on virtual box

I keep getting this error when trying to install windows 7 on a new virtual machine in virtual box.
Fatal: could not read from the boot medium! system halted.

I know that the dvd is good because it starts to install on the host machine if I try, I also changed the boot order for the VM to CD/DVD, any ideas what is wrong? thanks

Try with an ISO file of Windows 7 x64 OS install disk.

You can also delete the present VM, create a fresh one and try. Also check the settings of Virtual box which worked for you before.
