I have a program which opens a disk(External Flash disk) and overwrites the entire disk including the partition tables. Once it writes it then verifies by reading the data back to make sure it there were no problems. The problem is that when I do a read it gives me back the old data (before it was overwritten)... I know that it did actually write the date because if I first either unmount/remount the disk via "Safely Remove..." or go into Woindows Disk Management and perform a "Rescan Disks", the verify will work corectly. i.e., I get back the data that was written. How do I perform the flush (I assume) similiar to the Windows Disk Management "Rescan Disks"??? I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and RawDisk

"Flush" is a forceful writing to the backend storage. If you say the data is written correctly, then the problem is not in flushing. The problem might be in lack of notification of disk manager about he changes. We need to investigate this question deeper so I will move your question to helpdesk where it can be tracked.
