Hmmm, ok, well scandisk is a nasty piece of work, you should try partition
magic or something like that (you can dl a demo for free). That may show up
something that scandisk ignored.
Other than that the only other suggestion I have is to make sure when you
disconnect from your PC (after deleting/replacing ajbrec.ajz) in USB mode to
"safely unplug" via the icon in the system tray.
