had no trouble until today loading ununtu hardy heron from a cd. Now I get this error [263.809693] buffer I/O error on device sro, logical block 8321, and no ubuntu !!
Will someone offer some advice on this? As I said all was well yesterday. This is my first time on this forum.

Could be a few things, the Drive is dying, the cables are not all the way connected inside the machine, the CD has a scratch or the burn went bad.

Popele don't realize that CD-R can go bad, even over a few days if the weather changes significantly it can deteriorate, especially with low cost CD's.

Boot the livecd and choose "check cd for defects".

Happens to everyone sometimes, no worries.
