If I got it right, you are not able to see your hard disk unsing the 
Debian ?boot CD?- functions.
And what about the ?Installation Main-Menue?, where you have first tell 
Debian in which partition, define, mount, swap and so on --> Are you able 
to come till this menue?

Good Quality burning from a Distributor? 
Debian v3Rev2 has 7 CD's for i386

May be that's the point: You are preparing your hard disk for Debian with 
the Mepis Distribution. And you have not a new, empty hard disk.
I'm not an expert, but try to erase your hard Disk completely, including 
master boot record (MBR). Afterwards work only with the debian CD's.
