    Just Format using Format command while booting with a bootable floppy if you find any bad sectors go for low level formatting. This will solve your problem

    first run ScanDisk in DOS mode so that the surface scan fixes all bad sector problems.

    next format the drive using the command:
    format <drive> /u/v

    this should help.
