    What hardware are you using? Particularly, the CD drive, how old is it? You could check the connections to the drive. Try burning to a different CD, occasionally one is bad, burn it on a different drive.

    You don't give much information. How old is your hardware? What is on the computer now? Any operating systems? What did you use to burn the CD?

    If you google the exact error you have, there are a large number of hits. Some might prove to be useful.

    As nujinini tried to point out -- get a different CD burner or jus a different CDrom; also upgrade to 512MB RAM minimum. THEN look at a distro like antiX or absolute so that the fun can begin!

    I googled the error and got 95 hits. Not many but the solutions varied:

    Bad CD Burner
    Bad wires to burner/motherboard or loose connections
    Bad download
    Bad burn of iso
    Bad CD

    You seem to have eliminated most of those options. I found a couple of sites that indicate this is a result of windows registry errors?? Don't know anything about that. You can check the site below. Since you burned CDs on two different computers, that doesn't seem likely?

    Error 80 Repair Tool

    Nero is pretty reliable but you might try different burning software. ImageBurn is a free download.

    It is a pretty unusual error. Don't know what else to suggest.
