    While using NOD32 to scan a file, which checked good, first saw:

    Error occurred while scanning MBR sector of the 2. physical disk. Error reading sector.

    Did search and was glad to find:
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=82049&postcount=12

    Yesterday I started using a usb printer that has a flash media reader - can load media and preview on printer lcd, then print.

    The usb printer media reader appears as a 'Removable Disk'.

    So, given old thread posts, disabled disk, scanned a file, no error message.

    Enabled disk, scanned a file, error message.

    'Safely removed' disk, stopped, using icon in systray.
    Scanned a file, no error message.


    Do not, though, understand why NOD32 gives this error message.

    I experienced the same error when I installed a new HP 2710.
    Whenever it's on I get the error during a scan.

    Hi Dan,

    Right now the Lexmark P6250 is powered off, but the media reader still appears in WinXP explorer upon reboot as a
    'Removable Disk' - corrected to 'removable disk' from 'fixed drive'.

    No MBR to be scanned, esp. if no media inserted, I assume. Seems like NOD32 could somehow 'know'?

    As said, previous forum posts helped me figure out, just wasn't expecting and the rd is F: drive, which doesn't seem to 'line up' with '2. physical disk'?
