Oddities with MTD/DOC

If you have the M-System's DOS utility (downloadable), then try this:

docpmap /e

and see if it would wipe out the whole DOC and allows you to re-format again
using dformat (another DOS utility from M-System).  After that, try it in
Linux and see if it recognizes the DOC again.
