If it were me, I'd find out who made the drive in question and
get the manufacturer's diagnostic, no matter how well or poorly it
works with speech. That is the only way you are going to ever
really be sure what you're dealing with, If the hardware is okay,
there may be a third party program to try to fix issues you are
having, if the hardware isn't you're wasting your time.

Again, I must ask, how is this program accessible with JAWS???
And if it is not accessible with JAWS or any other screen
reader, how do you use it without sighted help? I suggest that
you read the following article, which claims that Spinwrite is
not what it's cracked up to be:

For those complaining about SpinRite, it would help if you read
the information at the site.?? ??The low-level file systems used
under Windows (and a number of other operating systems) have not
changed in a very, very long time.?? ??Thus, it's not necessary
for software that examines, analyzes and fixes same to change,
The SpinRite page explicitly states:?? "??SpinRite
is able to operate on all Windows XP NTFS formats, all DOS
FAT, all Linux file systems, Novell, Macintosh (if temporarily
moved into a PC) or anything else."?? ??NTFS is NTFS
as NTFS has always been.?? The various FAT varieties as well.
Steve Gibson doesn't generally leave anything up on the Gibson
Research site that isn't currently useful, even if not developed
recently.?? ??If he's still selling it, and he is, it's certain
to still do what it was advertised as doing.
In any case, errors such as the one being described here always
scream "failed or imminently failing" drive to me.?? ??You may
be able to get more information about what's wrong, which is
useful to know just for one's own information, but it's unlikely
to be fixable.
