    if you burnt them as iso images (not bootable disk) then the problem might be the burning speed.
    burn them again at the lowest speed and try

    How did you burn it? It should not be added as a data file, it needs to be burned as an image. Also you should extract the data from the iso image.

    The reason that format is used is to keep the boot information intact. If you are using Nero there should be a 'Burn Image' option available to you.
