Perhaps the program in question will not run under XP?  Try running it
under FreeDOS.

Bad CD writer?  Poor CDR media?  Compare an md5sum on the disk with
that of the file on CD, do they match?

I have found slight CDROM incompatibilities where a CD burned in a
given writer is unreadable in certain drives.  One solution is to
burned the data using another CD writer, if possible, or try another CD
drive in the target machine.

Besides my first question, the rest of my (somewhat limited) experience
leads me to hardware issues.
