I ran fsck on /dev/pda1 and it reported errors and proceeded to fix them, I then did another copy and same thing happened again. How can I make sure a cart has no errors?

PS. It was formatted as DOS previously, could this be related? The cart works fine under SyQuest software in Win98 and mounted as type msdos under linux!
