    looks like you have a bad burn or a device failure to read. things to try

    re burn
    boot from usb
    new media
    new drive

    You forgot to mention to check the md5 checksum, burn at low speeds and be sure to use quality media.

    I'm having the same exact problem. I have re-downloaded, re-burned, checked md5, and only have one disk drive on my laptop.
    I also tried it on my desktop and got the same exact error. The only thing I haven't done is burn at slower speeds and haven't tried booting from USB due to my lack of experience there, plus I would rather do a boot from the live CD. So other than that what else can I do? If I have to the I guess I will have to give it a try by booting from USB if my laptop supports it.

    I've just booted with the same DVD disk on a Toshiba Laptop and everything worked fine...so the DVD-drive could be the problem in the case mentioned above ? I 4got to say that on the same machine (Sony Vaio) I coul'd run the Backtrack 3 CD at all, BT4 booted till that error appeared!

    yes it can be a drive issue.. if the 0 and 1 dont get where its going as a 0 and 1 then you have media failure due to all the reasons listed.
