Sounds like your DVD drive. I recently had a client whose DVD drive ran 
well enough to allow us to install a number of programs, but refused to 
work with a CD that worked in other drives. We added a slave drive that 
allowed us to install the program that wouldn't load in his DVD.

Cheers,

Charles
