Problem:: end_request: i/o error, dev sda, sector 3285303


Code:
hello experts,

I am using Wind River Linux- 2.6.27.18-WR3.0bg_standard.
The problem is whenever i execute "reboot, ls, cd" and many other commands the OS prompts me an error-

"end request: i/o error, dev sda, sector "(different sector each time)". And

EXT3-fs error (device sda1):ext3_get_inode_loc:unable to read inode block- inode-4088001, block-4097027

I also executed "dmesg", it also showed similar errors.
Has the disk gone bad or the kernel is corrupted ? 
Any response is deeply appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,
NM04

It does indicate a problem with your drive.

Try reseating data and power cables first as it's cheap and easy.

I would suggest you to backup the data in the disk immediately.
