FWIW, I get the same error on my debian-mirror Cds. So, you are not alone (I
know that doesn't help you...).

Yup, I can mount it and do ls on it, but if I go to cp any of the files, it'll
just freeze the system and only a _power-off_ will get it back up and running.
This didn't happen with 1.3 disks (and it still doesn't). Is it at all
possible the problem is in the CDs being completely full? (my df on /cdrom
showed 100% used up)-- I know it is a long shot :-)
BTW, if I do ls three or four levels deep (i.e. ls
/cdrom/dists/hamm/binary-i386/mail it will give me those same errors but will
not lock up. Is it maybe a side-effect of the disks being cut under Win95?

I run 2.0.35, hamm (stable), ncr53c8xx driver and ncr53c815-based controller
under AMDK6-233, if that is any help. My Cdrom is a 24x NEC1810.
