We are using slightly different versions. On the Coco3 I see Disk Extended Color 
Basic 1.1 and then HDB-DOS 1.1D DW3 COCO 3.
Regards the server, I don't get any messages in the log window when loading a 
virtual disk. Could be a different version of the server. The other messages you 
quoted are given as sector read/write reports.

Looks like you now know you were not seeing errors and that the problems with 
the OS-9 games were the result of not having the DW3 driver in the os9boot file
