scandisk want to run a surface scan at almost every boot by J
Friday Morn During bootup scandisk informs me of need to run a thorough suface scan. I sometimes let it do this: takes nearly 3 hours. And after a couple of boots, it wants to do it again. Nothing is wrong with the drives.

After reading a zip disk the properties function always displays the initial disks capacity even though you have an empty disk in the drive. The Microsoft Backup program thinks the disk is full and will not write to it. Is there a fix?

CDR & CDRW not accessible by Chris
My CDR and CDRW used to work fine. Neither can be accessed now - all I get is a message saying " not accessible; device not ready".
