hi after reading another thread about someone having problems with the scandisc running all the time on win me ,i followed the links and read the microsoft knowledge base article on the matter ,microsoft suggest that you obtain the ide hard drive cachepackage ,which was installed as a windows update and microsoft reccomend that you obtain and install the 290831 SRB_FUCTION_SHUTDOWN.as my rewriter is connected via a scsi cable to a scsi pci ide adapter i believe this fix is appropiate to me ,ever since i have had this comp i have experieced scandisc problems from day one ,ie proper shutdown ,windows says improper shutdown ,scandisc needs to run -i have allways dismissed this error as a dodgy hard drive indeed after the last format scandisc coldnt check the drive due to bad clusters ,the thing is i am buying a new hard drive and i do not want to be having the probs i have been having ,i have tried navigating microsofts site but after 2 hours it did my head in ,is it possible then the probs i have been having are due to not having the relevant fix from microsoft ,and if so why cant microsoft make the fix easy to get {do i have to pay for this fix?}as usual all answers greatfully recieved ,cheers -hol pol...
