<With a 386 computer configured for B: =3D 360KB, a disk formatted in B:
<seems fine with no error messages. BUT: running SCANDISK on said
<newly-formatted 360KB diskette results in an error message: "Media
<descriptor byte incorrect", and prompts for repair. The byte, before
<and after repair, is hex FD. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

I suspect the following:

Disk controller board.

Corrupted format program.

Corrupted scandisk program.

One test not mentioned (or i've forgotten) is do you get the same error
on a disk formatted on a DIFFERENT PC?
