Weird CD-ROM messages

Ever since I've had linux, I have got this message when copying stuff off
of it. <its sparatic, it does not always happen>

dial-cup2-18:/cdrom/kernel/v2.0# cp linux-2.0.12.tar.gz /usr/src
hdc: cdrom_decode_status: status=0x51
hdc: cdrom_decode_status: error=0x10

After this message, I can hear the CD-ROM spin down, then spin up again,
and the copying is fine. The CD-ROM is an ATAPI 4x speed <Samsung SCR-630>
running on the second IDE channel (at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15)
Nothing is wrong while copying anything, but the message is just a bit
annoying ;>
