disk at times. Because of that, I twice incorrectly, perhaps, replaced
the drives. I now think that the problem stemmed from software
incompatibilities. My linux system was always able to read the disks,
though. The disks were written on windows systems. If I were you, I
would find someone who can test the disks on another computer or two.
If the disk can be read, have them add a small file to the disk and
close the session. Then try to read the disk again on your system.
good luck, Douglas
