    I'm on my friends computer again, and every so minutes or so... I get this message. What is it and how do I fix it.

    Looks like the hard disk on that channel is failing. Normally timeouts lead to failures.

    assuming this is windows xp - right-click My Computer - Manage - Event Viewer
    look through the System logs to check for any warning or failure events that occur at the time that you get these error messages. post them here.

    It's going to be awhile before I am on the computer again. If I find any errors, what does that mean. Just that the hard drive is failing?

    More than likely it's a hardware issue, but it depends on the errors you find in the event log as to what they mean :)
