You said you burn the Ubuntu install disc, it's verified, and then you insert it. That suggests you're burning the DVD on some other machine, not on the MacBook Pro itself.
That's fine, usually. But if the MacBook Pro cannot read the type of DVD you have burned, that will produce this error. I have seen this error with other Macs before.
The easiest way to check is to try burning the DVD with the MacBook Pro. If it works, then the DVD drive in the MacBook Pro supports the DVD in it.
