If it failed a CRC check then it's likely a corrupted file

AFAIK, it sounds liek your disc may be scratched.

I suggest you clean your disc, and the lens in your dvd/cdrom drive, and see how that goes.

If that doesnt work, then you may need a new disc :p

You can also try resurfacing the disc.

Or "back-up" your disc, but make sure the software you use is set to a low speed, ie 2x or 4x and it will hopefully miss the scratch and you will then be able to burn a new disc.
