OK, here's a weird one...anyone got any ideas for a possible cause???

A friend of mine (who is not on the mailing list) was trying to copy two disks. He says he first formatted blank disks and they formatted and verified fine.

When he used a block copy program to try to copy the disks, however, he says, "the drives stop reading at block 48. No error messages, light goes of like its done and program freezes up. This happen on both my drives."

Anyone got any clue why both of his drives would quit reading both of the (different) disks at the same block #???
