i am not quite sure, but i think the names of volumes are just a 
cosmetic thing on windows...

Try to check it there is a specific file or folder on these volumes, 
maybe with a repeat-loop.

Best in reverse order, since it is most likely that a: is the diskette 
and that will be
the slowest (and will make some terrible noise when checking ;-).

Hope that helps
