I used new CD-R, so the media shouldn't be the cause of the errors. But
either the way I burnt the CDs (tried two) or the drive may be the cause
indeed. I only knew that this CD-ROM drive has got some troubles reading
"cheap" CDs (the thin ones with the near-to-translucent coating) so I
used "better" ones. Anyway, since I have no more 4x-CD-R that I know to
work with this CD drive, I don't see an opportunity to do any further
testing :(

Hopefully I'll find a spare 4x-media somewhere ...

Found that already, thanks :) Since I suggest my further questions being
OT I'll give you a PM.
