Well... since you call those bytes "status bytes" and since they'd be zero
if the operation was successful, I will assume that they are an error

In DOS and OS/2 format, those four bytes would be:

  Error Class:  0x03    ==     3  ==  Hardware error.
  Error Code:   0x1c01  ==  7169  ==  ????

I've looked at all of the sources I have and I cannot find an error code 
with number 7169.  Hmmm...  The alternative is to read that value as in 
Network byte order (which would be wrong) which gives a decimal value of 
284.  I don't see anything for 284 either.

Okay... let's try NT_Status codes...

Considering byte order, the NT_Status code would be...


...which doesn't work either, since 1C should not be the first byte of an 
NT Error code.

Hmmm...  I don't know, I'm afraid.  What is it that's actually causing the 
message to fail?
