It's always a good idea to read the SC release notes and bugfixes page

Some fixes after SC0.81 include:
Fix: False timeout errors were reported at the end of file copies in
normal and turbo mode. 
Fix: The EOI detection problem, that caused the loss of the last byte of
some sectors during disk copy and the loss of the last directory sector
during reading the directory in normal transfer mode, has been finally

There was another problem that caused the loss of the last byte if a
parallel cable (XP1541) was used.

If there are problems with the recent 0.82 beta, please report them to
the author. I don't know what the problem with the old 386 is, but
probably the fast K6-2 has a mainboard with a very crappy I/O chip. You
might want to try the beta version of the new XA1541 cable on that
machine, I designed it to avoid problems with crappy LPT chips.
