Problem Burning Multiple Bin and Cue Images to DVD

I burn multiple images to my DVD. That way I can just mount the cue file on a virtual drive and I clear the space off of my hard drive. I burn it with Nero DVD-ROM (ISO). So one DVD will have multiple folders each with their own bin and cue inside.

I burn it at 4x with Verbatim DVD-R. I have a NEC 3500A.

It seems to burn correctly. I can acess all the folders and see the bin and cue files.

Then when I mount the cue file on a virtual drive (The Alcohol 120% virtual drive) I have issues when installing. It will start off just fine most of the time and then it will give me a cycle redundency error. I know the bin and cue are valid because they install just fine off the hard drive when they are mounted on the virtual drive. The files don't get wierd until I put them on DVD.

I could understand if that happen all the time, but it is hit and miss. Sometimes it will work perfect and then sometimes I have a DVD that is just useless and nothing works.

What am I doing wrong? Does anyone else do this or have this issue?
I just can not figure out why it is so hit and miss. I am not using bad media. I have tried on both Verbatim and TY.

Please help, cannot figure this one out at all.
