Trying to access a CDROM disc - drake 9.1


I have been trying to work on an error when attempting to install Mandrake 9.1


"I can't access a Mandrake Linux Installation disc in your CDROM drive (SAMSUNG CD-ROM SC-140). Retry?"

this infamous error I am unable to resolve, I tried searching everywhere on the issue but solutions I have found are swapping out cdrom drives, which the drive I have right now is perfectly fine.

KERNEL MESSAGE:

6>end_request: I/O error, dev 16:00 (hdc), sector 148
4> ISOFS: unable to read i-node block
4>hdc: command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
4>hdc: command error: error=0x50

retry-

6>end_request: I/O error, dev 16:00 (hdc), sector 148
4> ISOFS: unable to read i-node block
4>hdc: command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
4>hdc: command error: error=0x50

Make and Model:
Hewlett Packard Pavilion 466 celeron/ voodoo 5 only video card change, everything else is fine cdrom boots/ floppy/ hard drive. The system currently runs Mandrake 8.1 internet services/ FTP/ Samba/ games/ CD's/ music and video/ I enjoy Mandrake 8.1 so much I decided to try and do a install and or upgrade to 9.1. I downloaded all the .iso files 1-3 from mandrake.com, the i586 ISO images, burnt them in Nero with file>burn image>.iso cd 1 etc, everything went fine.

with the above errors I am getting I am unable to resolve and feel it will be awhile searching the net for an answer. If anyone has any information regarding this please reply or drop me an email bgigi@bellsouth.net, I could try a network install or ftp server install but I wont, I have Mandrake 8.1 up and working fine.


thanks for your time, and any at all help would be greatly appreciated.

I had a similar issue. I in turn had to reload it from another site. Try it again and see if it happens again. Let us know...Joe

Trying to access a CDROM disc - drake 9.1

Thanks Joe for the reply, any information is worth a try at this point. I downloaded iso 1 of Mandrake 9.1 from Linuxdownloads and some other area other then mandrake.com, burned to cd using nero file/burn image. The cds were created fine but same error message as above. The cd gets recognized but when it states its trying to access the cd is when the error comes up. I have attempted expert and other ways to install.

When it asks for scsi access and I can select cdrom.o, then ask for parameters anything I could attempt there for it to recognize my samsung sc-140 if anyone knows.

Mandrake 8.1 is still working great, and installed perfectly I am so stumped.


thanks all
