Is /dev/hdc a cdrom drive? I've gotten similar messages on old scratched up cd's which could only be partially read. If it isn't a cdrom drive then the harddisk might be corrupt. You could try scanning for bad blocks.

Depending on your system and/or the type of drive, you might need to tune your DMA and I/O parameters using hdparm. And of course- check your drive's cabling/connections.

There is an article here which describes how to check and change drive parameters with hdparm.

Hi

There is nothing on /dev/hdc.
O/p of mount does not not show any thing mounted on /dev/hdc. It has
/dev/hdc8 on /
/dev/hdc1 on /boot
/dev/hdc6 on /home
/dev/hdc5 on /usr
/dev/hdc7 on /var

I tried to work out something with hdparm as well.
hdparm -X66 -c3 -u1 -d1 -m16 /dev/hdc*
but this as well not working. problem still remains. I even checked all my cable connections.

Possibly I will not get it in single user mode.
System is in under test(single user) for last 3 hours with out errors. I dont know why.

Please help.

Thanks a lot for your Time and Space.

you don't seem to understand the ide referencing method..

hdc is a reference to the physical device, A harddrive, a cdrom drive, and ls120 disk drive etc... hdc1 is a partition upon a harddrive. so you DO have hdc.

hdparm works up a device, and not a partition, operations of DMA or PIO modes operates outside the scope of partitions.

just try 'hdparm /dev/hdc' to start off with, IF that's going to help at all.

you may be right. but your solution is not helping me out. I know that /dev/hdc is there and refers to device. Actually, when nothing works I go for all possible options.

Give me solution !!!!!

Anyway, thanks for the comments.
