I don't think you can tell from that output... It maybe that Linux was trying to write something to the drive as you were loading a program or whatever... How many hard drives do you have...What is hdc?

In any event... BACK-UP

Its a DMA problem when using certain hard drive brands with certain IDE/SATA controllers. Usually Maxtor and Seagate drives have problems with DMA.
