Hmm - I wonder if the usb message at the same point is related;
is it a virtual CDROM connected via USB? But there again
it's hdf not sdf which you would expect from a USB device.
Was that the first message at that time - I find it curious that the
USB and disc errors happened at the same time - what else happened then?

Is the virtual CDROM done with some thing that also does a KVM type thing?
