according to your problem, the site "http://ntfs-3g.sitesweetsite.info" is no longer up and running. the site "http://flomertens.free.fr" also is running, but the binary-amd64 packages are no longer on the site, i386 is the only thing still supported. You need to either delete these from your sources file, located at /etc/apt/sources.list, or find the address where they are currently hosted. Perhaps if you go to these sites and click through the links you will find amd64 supported packages. To edit your sources file, which tells aptitude where to find the packages you wish to update, use:
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

As for the cdrom: entry, look at https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nautilus/+question/65039
for an answer. You should not need the cdrom any more. You should comment out or delete these lines from your /etc/apt/sources.list by using the following:
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
and placing a # in front of the cdrom: lines to comment out. Or deleting them

As you can see in above messages, you wanted to download packages related to Dapper and Edgy.
