Xubuntu 9.10 LiveCD on USB fails with error can't open /dev/sr0: no medium found

Using Ubuntu's USB Startup Disk Creator (USB-creator-gtk), I created a LiveUSB from the Xubuntu 9.10 LiveCD. When booting, it stalls up with the Xubuntu mouse splash screen displayed.

"I didn't find the answer elsewhere, so I decided to document my findings on superuser.

If you just wait a really long time, xubuntu will give up trying to access /dev/sr0, and then the live-usb image will boot.

There is probably a trickier way to get the problem to stop happening."
