This might explain it - I have had many problems with HDDRIVER and my
removable JAZ drive.
Things aren't too bad so long as I stick to V6.13

Some problems come when I change media - often TOS displays the contents
of the wrong partition (V7.02 HDDRIVER).

The other problem occurs when the Jaz goes to sleep. If an application
or file selector tries to access it next then the Jaz usually wakes up
and continues ok.. but if I try and open the partition from the TOS
desktop with a double-click then the drive never seems to get a wake-up
call and the partition icon refuses to open up a window.
The workaround is just to reboot more often.
