I would suspect a problem with your burner.  Also, you should verify
the integrity of the newly burned disc by comparing the contents to
the source data.  If you do this and use name-brand media (memorex,
maxell, tdk, sony, verbatim etc.), the contents should be reliable for
at least a few years barring any physical damage to the discs...
