Is there media inside the drive? Is the drive working

Of course; as it seems to me, this message may not have
something to do with an actual mounting attempt, so you
can leave the fstab entry intact.

Hmm... interesting. So the error message is printed by
the kernel, but not brought into relationship with a
certain device.

That's normal, it is a diagnostic message printed out
by the kernel. You'll find it in the dmesg output, as
well as probably in /var/log/messages and related message

Still, the question is: Is it related to the drive, or
maybe to the controller the drive sits on?
