Cheeni Kum title song rocks

The title song of the movie Hindi movie "Cheeni Kum" just rocks!!! I love the passion with which Shreya Goshal has sung the song.

I personally feel that she has bested her own previous top "Jadu Hai Nasha Hai"

Windows Scandisk better than Mac disk tools

I hate saying this... but it seems that the Windows Scandisk tool is better than any of Mac's disk tools (Disk Utility, fsck) at fixing disk problems.

I finally connected my external hard drive to a Windows system and ran Scandisk. That fixed all the problems with my hard drive. And now the hard drive mounts fine on a Mac too.

Sorry Apple!!! But this one goes to Microsoft :-(

Mac & FAT32 HDD problems

A file on my external USB hard drive failed to read today. The hard drive has a FAT32 file system, so that I can read the data from a Windows box and my Mac.

I suspect that the hard drive has some bad sectors (something I use to fix using "scandisk", when I used to run a Windows box).

I tried running Disk Utility -> Repair Disc from my Mac. It ran fine but the problem was still there.

I tried running "fsck" from Terminal, and it gave me a weird error "BAD SUPER BLOCK: MAGIC NUMBER WRONG ".

And googling just seems to bring me to the conclusion that nobody uses a FAT32 external hard drive with a Mac. Am I the only freak doing this??????
