ide-scsi problems with plextor IDE drive (post2)

In March, I sent in a plea for help on determining whether a problem I'm
having mounting CDs using ide-scsi is hardware or linux related. I was
disappointed to not see a single reply.

In the meantime, I have upgraded my whole system and moved the plextor
drive to the new system and still get the same errors when I try to mount
a CD using ide-scsi. This rules out the motherboard possibility so it's
either the drive or linux...I'm leaning toward linux since it seems to
work under windows. I'm running 2.2.15pre19 now and still have the prob.

Anyone with any suggestions for debugging this?

Subject: ide-scsi problems with plextor IDE drive

I've been having some intermittent problems with a brand new plextor IDE
CD-RW drive under linux. I haven't had any problems reading or writing to
the drive under winDOS 95, nor have I had problems writing to the drive
using cdrecord, but I've had tons of problems reading from the drive (e.g.
mounting a CD). I'm accessing the drive via ide-scsi emulation.
