yup, sadly it looks fine and i'm not sure what else i can do to help you
out.  it sounds like your optical drive may be failing - is there anyone
around there you could borrow another one from?  but you have two - have
you tried this with both of them?

i've seen ubuntu get confused when i've had two optical drives, removed
one, moved the other around the bus, put the second one back in, etc.
etc.  for example every time i run dvd::rip i have to reselect my
optical drive - it continually wants to use /dev/scd1 when no such
device exists in my system anymore (i should really figure out how to
fix that).  perhaps a fresh install with 8.04.1 and only one optical
drive in the system would be worth a try.

using 8.04.1 would cut down on the number of updates you have to install
to get up to speed, perhaps a trip to http://shipit.ubuntu.com would be
worth the effort?
