Default Creative Scan disc program?

okay, what the heck does the progrma SCAN DISC actually do anyways?

this is for an XFI-2 or any other creative player for that matter..

is there any way to determine what scan disc looks for during operation?

Scan disc program runs every so often on my X-fi 2, followed by rebuild mode

Does the immediate running of rebuild indicate something was found to be wrong?? if yes, what was it?

does scan disc find errors and store them someplace in a register?

or does it fix any problems found?

I think it is so that if the player shut down unexpectedly it does a scan to see if something is wrong with the device. If it can't find anything wrong it boots as usual. The rebuild is because the library is somehow lost since the player crashed earlier, and thus have to be rebuilt.
Though you'd have to ask Creative to be sure, I'm just guessing.
