kernel I/O errors


I keep getting kernel I/O error reports in my system mail. Every time I write to or read from a floppy, cd or dvd I get a bunch of errors like this:
Code:
--------------------- Kernel Begin ------------------------ 

 WARNING:  Kernel Errors Present
    Buffer I/O error on device fd0, l...:  13 Time(s)
    end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector...:  70 Time(s)
 
 ---------------------- Kernel End -------------------------
Is this a problem with the current kernel version, didn't I configure my system right, is it a hardware problem (on 3 drives??) or is something else the matter?

I recently discovered I did not have DMA enabled on my cdrom and dvd drives, but the error messages persist.

I have now established usb thumb drive generates the same error reports.

This really can't be normal (or is it?)

Any ideas as to what may cause it and how to prevent it?
