I'm not sure but I think I recall getting that error when trying to mount a
disk that had media problems :-(

It probably doesn't help much but the online help says this:

 VOLINV,  volume is not software enabled

  Facility:     SYSTEM, System Services

  Explanation:  The volume valid bit is not set for the volume. All physical
                and logical I/O operations will be rejected until the bit is

  User Action:  Check for a programming error. Verify that the volume is
                mounted and loaded. Check to see that the power is on before
                retrying the program.
