Here's dmesg before Rich's suggestion to drop the 'udf' from fstab.
$ dmesg
...

Here is after Bill's
The failed "Read 10" packet command was:
 "28 00 00 03 91 20 00 00 02 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 "
end_request: I/O error, dev hdc, sector 935040
Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 233760
Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 233761

Bill's would appear to indicate a different secto error. You indicate
"If different blocks
> turn up bad, it's probably the motor or positioning head that's gone awry,
> or the head needs cleaning."

But now none of these error messages appear. Here's an excerpt from
dmesg after Rich's idea:
$ dmesg
--snip--
Probing IDE interface ide1...
hdc: CREATIVE CD-RW RW1210E, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:02:08.0[A] -> GSI 20 (level, low) -> IRQ 16
e100: eth0: e100_probe: addr 0x40000000, irq 16, MAC addr 00:02:A5:85:41:BA
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:1f.4[C] -> GSI 23 (level, low) -> IRQ 17

uhci_hcd 0000:00:1f.4: irq 17, io base 0x00002440
usb usb1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
hub 1-0:1.0: USB hub found
hub 1-0:1.0: 2 ports detected
SCSI subsystem initialized
libata version 2.20 loaded.
hdc: ATAPI 32X CD-ROM CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, DMA
--snip--

If there's a general convergence of diagnostic opinion, it would
appear to be pointing to something physical, in the drive itself, in
the connections, in the disk(s).

Thanks. I'll press on in that direction.
