I had a lot of trouble with my v880's the last time I tied to do that too. 
I ended up giving up and I setup a network install server instead.

It was frustrating to attempt to boot the machine 4 times on a disk that 
works fine in another server and I can't get it to read it all. And yet my 
old Solaris 9 disks do work. Burning the image on different media might 
help, but I didn't have that option. If you've got media to waste you 
could try slowing it down to 1x for the burn too, but I don't know if 
that would really help. Did you try burning the CD images instead?
