This sounds like what often happens when there is some corruption of
your disk. I repaired problems of this kind under windows XP with the
chkdisk command, namely 'chkdisk /F J:'.
Checks a disk and displays a status report.
CHKDSK [volume[[path]filename]]] [/F] [/V] [/R] [/X] [/I] [/C] [/L[:size]]
volume Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon),
mount point, or volume name.
filename FAT/FAT32 only: Specifies the files to check for
/F Fixes errors on the disk.
/V On FAT/FAT32: Displays the full path and name of
on the disk.
On NTFS: Displays cleanup messages if any.
/R Locates bad sectors and recovers readable information
/L:size NTFS only: Changes the log file size to the
of kilobytes. If size is not specified, displays current
/X Forces the volume to dismount first if necessary.
All opened handles to the volume would then be invalid
/I NTFS only: Performs a less vigorous check of index
/C NTFS only: Skips checking of cycles within the folder
The /I or /C switch reduces the amount of time required to run Chkdsk by
skipping certain checks of the volume.
