New user here, and rather confused. I downloaded UBCD V5.0RC1, burned ity to CD and booted using the CD. Then selected Hard Disk tools and Diagnostics and selecting any one of the Samsung tools results in an error saying program.bat is not present, check cd. Using VC to browse the CD boot time drives Q: and A: there's no evidence of the tools existing anywhere on the media?

I assume I'm missing something/ misunderstanding the manner in which UBCD is used and if so, I apologise for the newbie question, but would appreciate a little help - I've a Samsung drive that popped its clogs a week ago and I was able to recover all the data, but would like to run diagnosis on the drive before I reimplement it in my PC.

Thanks in advance.

Do you see a T:\ drive when you boot (the FreeDOS image)?

Can you tell exactly which utilities you tried?

No drive T:, so far as I can tell only drives A: and Q: are active after booting the CD.

I tried Hutil 2.10 and ES Tool 3.

Both yield the same error.

drd 'a:' writeable (memdisk fake writeable)
drd 'q:' writeable

all other drive letters return invalid

fwiw i get the same result with aida16 and a range of other appsso i'm guessing they're simply missing.

the consistent error message is "UBCD: Error!!! missing pcconfig.bat (check CD)

replace pcconfig.bat with just about anything you want to run.

doing a little googling it seems the problem has been around since 2006... http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/ar ... 90603.html

so, anyone know a workaround or quick way to make a bootcd with the requisite progs on board ... i don't have a floppy?

The problem seems to me that FreeDOS can't find your CD drive.

I make a small iso (< 12MB) of the dos apps of UBCD50RC1 that use the FreeDOS image.

Add the following in /ubcd/custom/custom.cfg:
Code:
LABEL ubcd50RC1dos
MENU LABEL Boot DOS apps of UBCD50RC1
LINUX /boot/syslinux/memdisk
INITRD /ubcd/custom/ubcd50RC1_dos.iso
APPEND iso raw


For the Grub4dos menu, edit /ubcd/custom/custom.lst:
Code:
title Boot DOS apps of UBCD50RC1
map /boot/ubcd/ubcd50RC1_dos.iso (hd33) || map --mem /boot/ubcd/ubcd50RC1_dos.iso (hd33)
map --hook
map --mem (hd33)/ubcd/images/fdubcd.img.gz (fd0)
map --hook
root (fd0)
chainloader (fd0)+1

You can get ubcd50RC1_dos.iso from:
http://ubcd.stopspazzing.com/downloads/ubcd-dos/
Place it in /ubcd/custom/.

Rebuild the iso.
