actually there are many causes since there are many things that can go that can go wrong from having a corrupt iso to a disc not being read right....
there so many steps (downloading from the net...iso corrupt) to the harddisk not work working as well anymore, the iso not burned correctly, the burner had a coaster and even the dvd not being read correctly....

Use IE7 to download the images then burn to DVD. I had the same problem either reading from a burned DVD or an ISO - the problem I found was that I was using Firefox to download the ISOs and not IE. Somehow part of the download was getting corrupted when not using IE7's download manager. I've never had this kind of problem with FF but that's what did it for me. Either that or the site was having some kind of an issue. Give it a shot..

i don't think FF is the problem because i downloaded with IE7.

Maybe not - maybe it's just random issues occurring mid download. I just find it real hard to believe that reading the ISO images falls on certain hardware - seems lame to have a beta that falls short on that sort of thing. Anwyay, that's what seemed to consistently work for me.
