I don't have any experience with MultiCD itself,but it looks like either your hard drive is failing or the files are corrupt somehow.

Reboot into a LiveCD and run fsck on your main partition, probably something like /dev/sda1. You can check by running df and looking for where "/" is mounted. In the LiveCD run fsck /dev/sda1 and you'll probably find some sort of error.

I recently had an error with cp: failed to extend and something was wrong with the files themselves. Try to find a checksum from where you downloaded MultiCD or the files you're using with it. Maybe just try redownloading.

Good luck.

EDIT: I said I had a similar problem because of a corrupt file, and that's what I thought at the time. I later learned it really was a dying hard drive. So chances are pretty high that your hard drive might be failing.
