I have been using 32 bit for a while and it works very well but I thought I would experiment with 64 bit.
I downloaded the 64 bit Testing released this week and burned to DVD.
Live boots up quickly and everything works as it should. Thunar finds and mounts all my other partitions as well as my network shares. Wireless connection works just fine etc. Very nice!
So...I decide to replace the 32 bit install on my sda2 partition using ext3 file system.
Everything seems to work OK until the installer says it is configuring apt.
A message pops up on the installer screen with this:
/cdrom/:please insert the disc labeled:'DebianGnu/Linux 7.0.0-Wheezy_-official Snapshot and64 LIVE/Install Binary 20120924-11:17' in the drive '/cdrom/' and press enter
The only way to get out of the error was to go back, and when I did the grub install menu came up.
So I installed grub to / as I chainload and the installer went on to completion.
When I rebooted, I was able to log in but nothing was accessible in Thunar and not much else worked either.
I thought it might be a bad burn or download. i checked the md5sum and burned another DVD.
I tried the installation again with the same result.
EDIT: I downloaded the new 32 bit testing and experienced the same errors upon install.
Fortunately I still have my older DVD to re-install with.

I support the candidate that will steal the least from me....
I have exactly the same problem as afab4 trying to install it in VirtualBox as a fresh install!
I am trying the September iso 64-bits in a Crunchbang 64-bits host.
I did not have this problem with the August release, btw.
I too am having the same issue. Here's the full error:
/cdrom/:Please insert the disk labeled: 'Debian/GNU Linux 7.0.0_Wheezy_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20120924-11:17' in the drive '/cdrom/' and press enter.
Also, I downloaded the images originally last week using the torrent downloads, and ran into the error; I checked the MD5sums and found that they were all wrong, so I grabbed the http downloads and all of the MD5sums check out correctly. Tried installing the 64-bit version last night and ran into the same error. Suggestions?
Sorry, in my previous post, the part about the MD5 sums not matching up correctly from the torrent downloads, I failed to mention that I downloaded all three iso's (i486, i686, and amd64), and none of the MD5's were correct from the torrent downloads. I'm more concerned about the error and the inability to install #! to my hard drive than I am about the MD5 sums, but I thought that I'd mention it in case there is an issue with the torrents. All three iso's had matching MD5sums from the http downloads.
I have the same problem with the 32 bit version: I tryed to install waldorf in my netbook, downloading the iso from distrowatch http://distrowatch.com/?newsid=07472 i haven't checked the MD5 but probably that's the point..
stat rosa pristina nomine, nomina nuda tenemus
There were issues with Debian in the 24 September ISOs. They were replaced with new ISOs dates 27 September as per this forum message. Can you please check you are using an ISO named similar to "crunchbang-11-20120927-amd64.iso" (it is the date that is important, -amd64 is obviously the 64bit ISO).
The Distrowatch link points to the release with the upstream bug. It is always advisable to download the distro direct from the distro's website.
