1) Where did you get the ISO from?
2) How did you install the ISO to the USB stick?

Just to add what arochester has asked, could you provide a link to the ISO you downloaded, and tell us what media you're using for installation.
NEC Spirit 550 P4 3.8GHz HT - 2GB RAM - nVidia 7600GT - Pioneer BDR-209DBK
ASUS Sabertooth P67 i7 3770K - 32GB RAM - 2x nVidia 660GTX SLI'd

What does this mean? Which ISO are you using? Live?

I have attempted a VirtualBox install using the new Stable (Stretch) live-cd (xfce version obtained from Debian) and have found that it "does not detect cdrom" and cannot continue with the installation, I tried both the install and graphical install options and both have the same result. I will be testing one of the standard install images next as I'm sure the problem will not arise there.

Conclusion: I think the live-cd's are more for evaluation and testing (at the moment) and you would likely get a better installation experience from using an install image (netinst would be my next choice) mainly due to the fact that Stretch has only just become "Stable" and there may need to be some creases ironed out. The netinst image does require a network connection to be able to install so it could be a problem if you have a wifi only system (like me) that requires non-free firmware, but if you have a ethernet connection it usually will not give you any problems.

Thanks.
I have come to the same conclusion.
The live media are not for installing yet.
I have installed hundreds off various dists using usb.
I go for the netinstaller.
Thanks

Many users have reported this error does not recognize the CD-Rom when trying to install Debian by USB stick, see this matter to resolve the issue.

Same error here: upon downloading Debian 9 LXDE Live image, and writing it on a USB stick with Rufus (ISO), the graphical installer loads, but after selecting locale on "Load installer components from CD" step it shows me the following message: "There was a problem reading data from the CD-ROM. Please make sure it is in the drive. If retrying does not work, you should check the integrity of your CD-ROM. Failed to copy file from CD-ROM. Retry? No / Yes"
Previously (with Jessie Live CD) everything worked well.

I downloaded the gnome version with the same results. I even burned to dvd, but it stilll complains. Why would a 2.2gb iso think its on a cd. Tried loopback, with same results

Just now tried this method. My usb iso was already mounted as CDROM. So that trick didn't work.

When I switch consoles and check it says /cdrom is already mounted from /dev/sr0 (VirtualBox)

This ISO gets me further into installation, but freezes when I choose a network mirror. Or not choose one, doesn't matter. Could it be, that not all mirrors have been updated yet?

Same issues. Was slightly shocked when the GNOME ISO didn't work. Net install worked flawlessly [the second time, anyway - the first was a torrent and didn't work, the download from the Debian site did work, on the other hand].
