When start installation ubuntu 12.04 LTS 386 along with windows XP, I get the message {errno 5: input/output error} . I though it was DVD drive failure and i installed a new drive but I still have the same problem, Any suggestion?

Input output error means the computer can't read your DVD.

Your DVD is damaged, burn a new one, if possible using a slightly slower speed rate than the last one. Also
Make sure your DVD drive is clean too, there cleaner CDs that would do this.

Another alternative would be to boot from a Live USB drive.
