Failure reading sector.... by installing the PV8

I am installing PV8 from ISO. I keep getting the same error when starting the installation.
Failure reading sector....
The thing is, I burned the CD three times and did the USB stick too. Can you check if the ISO of the site has problems?

did you verify the checksum of the downloaded file? If the ISO on our site would be corrupt, many more people would complain.
it was a mastering problem, a track was not being written well. I solved it with a usb stick and burning with the command dd if= xxx of=/xxx/xxx . thanks
