FWIW, I have the same problem on my Compaq Presario V4240US. I had the
problem with Breezy, and still have it with a fresh install of Dapper.
After poking around for a while, I gave up and now keep a blank CD in
the drive to avoid having the log files filled up with the error
messages. I notice, however, that the disk activity light blinks about
once per second - the same rate at which the messages were being written.
