I wouldn't be to sure about that, my guess is that it's either a cd
problem, or a problem with your cdrom-device. Harddisks are numbered.
The first disk in your pc/laptop being /dev/hdA, the second /dev/hdB,
... Partitions are marked with a number, so /dev/hda2 for example is the
second partition on your first disk. The error exists on /dev/hdc which
is probably your cdrom-device. Have you tried googling on the error
