I use a PowerPc G4 733Mhz running Mac OS X Version 10.4.11. I recently upgraded from OS X version 10.4. My problem is that, now some of my programs like Soundtrack Pro are not running properly. Also I had a partition disk dissappear though its icon does show faint at the disk utility screen. When I try to verify and repair the disk, it gives the following error message;

The underlying task reported failure on exit. 1 HFS volume checked Volume needs repair. How can this be fixed?
