General Protection fault

Hi, I just intalled a CDR and a mysterious problem appeared: Every time I run a setup.exe from CD of any program in CDrom or CDr, a general protection fault occur as following:
ISSET_SE caused a general protection fault
in module SETUP.EXE at 0001:000032cc.

However, if I copy the intallation program to hard drive and run from there, no error would occur.  Anyone can tell me if this is a hardware problem or a software one?  How can I solve it?

Basically what you are describing is that the drivers for the CD-ROM and CD-R are not accessing the disk correctly. Try this:

1. Delete all CD devices from the device manager tab at My Computer (right click) properties.  
2. Reboot and let windows resinsall the drivers for the devices.

If this doesn't solve your problem, please provide more information about your CD-R, CD-ROM, and your system.
