I am using Win 98 FE with 2 HDD of 40 GB & 4 GB. My problems commenced since loading DirectX 9. The scandisk does not complete the task in the DOS mode on the major HDD (40GB with 4 Partitions) with the error report that it has detected an error which it cannot correct after checking about 1-3%. On the smaller (4Gb single partition) the scandisk has no problems completing the task. In windows mode the scandisk reports no error on both the disk. Any suggestions to solve the problems is more than welcome. Thank you. M.
