    I would agree that it seems to be unrelated to the hardware. It's happening on
    too many different systems for me as well. However, it seems to happen with
    the worst of my CDs whether the system is heavily loaded or not.

    I can't reproduce this. Running

    mount /mnt/cdrom ; ls -lR /mnt/cdrom | sum ; umount /mnt/cdrom ; isovfy
    /dev/cdrom

    consecutive times produces a different answer (size and checksum) from the sum
    command virtually every time, but never once does isovfy give a filesystem error
    for the CD.
