Max:
I found my problem: opening PHYSICALDISK instead of PHYSICALDRIVE.
This is really dumb. Everywhere disks are referenced as DISK, so why do
they change it to DRIVE? Thanks M$!

Thanks,
Bill

    Probably for the same reason that HalAssignSlotResources, though obsolete,
    requires that a pointer to a Device Object be included in what was an
    optional parameter under NT-4.

    Some body had a better idea and had never RTFM'd the existing documentation.
