I am trying to install Ubuntu 13.10 in my notebook from an USB flash drive but when I try to boot or install directly from the USB I got the following messages and the process stops.

No Caching mode page present
Assuming drive cache: write through
Attached SCSI disk

What is the problem and what can I do in this case?
