    Unhappy [Errno 5] Input/output error

    hey everybody.

    when im traying to install backtrack 4 rt2

    this happens


    The installer encountered an error copying files to the hard disk:

    [Errno 5] Input/output error

    This is often due to a faulty CD/DVD disk or drive, or a faulty hard disk. It may help to clean the CD/DVD, to burn the CD/DVD at a lower speed, to clean the CD/DVD drive lens (cleaning kits are often available from electronics suppliers), to check whether the hard disk is old and in need of replacement, or to move the system to a cooler environment.


    english not my mother language and iam new in backtrack .

    i checked md5sum . dvd/r . and everything .

    please help me

    Well my guess is that it's a hardware problem, however just to be sure try using it on another computer, try booting of a live USB.
