ScanDisk may not fix the media descriptor byte when it says that it will.
There are two structures that are labeled "media descriptor." One is
located in the boot sector and the other is located in the FAT entry for
cluster 0. ScanDisk and ScanDisk for Windows check only the media
descriptor located in the FAT entry, not the media descriptor located in
the boot sector.
