SoundBlaster cdrom problems

Many moons ago I installed debian 2.0 on my 486 using floppies for the
base system and an official cd for the packages.
I've just tried to repeat the process with version 2.2. The base system
is ok - from floppies, but I'm having trouble with the cd.
I can mount it, wander the directories and even copy many of the files
to the hard disk.
However attempts to copy some files fail with i/o errors ( detail below
The same is true under Windows 95.
I've not had any problems with other cds on the same box.
On the other hand I've used the same cds to install debian on a
different machine.
Could it be some subtle change/new faeture in the cd format or is my
machine just inconsistent?
I think that the problems tend to occur with larger files but I haven't
tested this exhaustively.
