If you've actually taken the time to research your problem yourself, then Hooray for you! But, generally, you would provide links to the information you found and didn't understand. Is that the extent of the message or is there more? Typically I would expect more information than a one-liner. Is hdc really a hard drive or is it an optical drive? What are you doing with the drive when the messages are thrown?
