... "Error validating disk" message.. what's wrong?
... Workbench 1.3 on CDTV "error validating disk"

This is why you should not use FFS as the filesystem, you should look into changing it to PFS3-AIO. This would require destroying all data on the card though and starting over (back up the card's contents on your PC first and restore later).

Another vote for "never use FFS even if your life depended on it" :P
PFS3/AIO is great.
