I have a similar problem with the same command on Linux (SuSE-7.0, Midas
version 01FEB). It works in 98NOV.

The error in my case is:

CREATE/TCAT all *tbl
Table catalog all with 7 entries created...
outdis/fits all.cat NAME=INPUT ? .mt
Warning: Cannot open or find type of file >=Table<
Error: cannot close FITS file correctly 

In my case, I could solve the problem by editing the catalogue and removing
the first line (the header line =Table catalog, IDENT)

You could try if this works for you, but this is just a guess. The command
OUTDISK/FITS certainly has a bug.
