Please provide some more information, such as:

How are you running Scan Disk?
What operating system?
Does your disk work well in other ways, i.e. can you read/write files on that disk?

In case you're having trouble reading or booting from that disk, run some disk diagnostics. A good boot CD for this purpose is the Ultimate Boot CD, which you can download from: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/
You can also download diagnoistics from the drive manufacturer's web site.

In any case I would suggest making a backup of your important files first, in case the disk starts to get worse.

Also, what is the complete and EXACT error?

Unable to access volume - volume scan failed?
Unable to access volume group device?

Something else?
