Error Handling in Absolute Disk I/O
Posted on 2002-03-22
iam performing absolute disk i/o in vc++ using deviceiocontrol function issuing interrupt 25h ,26h
iam performing read write of 4k at a time i.e
in one read/write the noof sectors are 8.
my problem is, say iam writing from sector 200 to 208
in one write ,then there may be some sectors which are bad between 200 to 208.so, i want to know which particular sectors between 200 to 208 are bad.
i.e i want to know whether those bad sector numbers are being returned in the cpu registers and is there any way to know it.
U can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
any help in this regard is mostly appreciated.
thanks in advance.
