Strange Problem.

I'm having a very strange problem with not only Xubuntu but Plain Ubuntu also.

When I put one of the cd's in and try to start (X)Ubuntu I can get to
just past the first Menu (Start or install, Start in Graphics Safe
etc.). It says Laoding the Kernel, ("Uncompressing Linux... Ok,
booting kernel.") then goes to a list as follows:

Loading Essential Drivers...     ok
Mounting root file system...   ok
Mounting mount points... ok
Adding Live CD user...

Then goes back to a black screen and says:
"Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting kernel.

and It acts like a command line but if you type something and hit
enter it doesn't do anything. You can just keep typing and typing.

It's only done one thing other that that, and only once.

It only got to "Mounting root file system... " not "Adding live CD user.."
Then it whent back to the: "Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting kernel"

Then started with:
"[######.#####] Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block #"

For pages and pages and ended with a few different errors I couldn't
read before it just whent black and non-responsive.

I'm completely lost and I'm out of idea's. You Seen or heard of this before?
