    hi

    I have opensuse 10.0 and get a lot of these error messages:
    Code:

    Replace disk. It's a hardware disk is bad issue. At least it is for me 99.9% of the time. The other 0.01% of the time it's due to a damaged or loose SCSI/IDE cable.

    issue whether it's music or code. You can't re-distribute other peoples
    music (becuase it's _their_ copyright), but they shouldn't put limits on
    how you personally _use_ it (because it's _your_ life)."

    I was thinking the disk was a hard disk, didn't see the tray open part. The buffer I/O error would spell bad news for a hard disk. Maybe something is trying to access the CDROM drive and there is no disk for it to read, or maybe the CDROM drive has some issues of it's own.

    Last time I saw this on a CD-drive, it turned out to be flakey spindle motor drive circuitry. End game was replacing the drive.

    How old is it, and do you have a known good unit that you can temporarily install in its place--for fault isolation purposes?
