    I think it's a hardware problem not related to Slack or Windows,nothing wrong can damage the DVD rw,i had the same problem before and to be sure i exchanged my DVD to my friend's one just to see and everything works fine.i't can be a bad luck only not related the Slack installation.

    Yes please just post a message when you exchange your DVD,but i'm quite sure that it's a hardware issue.
