You didn't say whether the CD itself is faulty or not. Try the CD on another machine and see if you get CRC error. If you do, most probable the CD is faulty.

But if the other machine have no problems reading this CD, then this windows2000 machinehave problems. You will have to look for the problems 1 by 1. You have to check whether it is the CDROM or the Windows2k problems or the motherboard problems or your IDE problems. This really takes trial and error method. Just use common sense. For eg, if you think the CDROM is faulty, try putting in another CDROM from the other machine and see if you still get CRC error.

As for Win2k, you might need to install new drivers and settings. For IDE cdrom, you might need to enable/disable DMA feature. OR reduce the cache settings or others.

Also, some motherboard itself might have problems. It is known that Abit boards using KT133a chipset have problems transfering large data files on their IDE connections. There is a fix for this problemon their latest 4-in-1 drivers. A better fix would be to change to KT133e chipset boards.

Check if your CD in the HCL (Hardware Compatibility List) of Microsoft. That kind of error usually indicates a problem with the CD itself. If the CD burned sometimes a device has a problem to read it. Try to make a tests with another PC and see whatyou get.

Good luck...
