Having problems with SCSI MO drives

I'm trying to connect up various MO (magneto-optical) drives to a PC via
SCSI interface and having consistent problems. The adapter in question is
an Adaptec AHA-1542CP.

The errors are:

Host adapter status: 00h - No host adapter error
Target status: 02h - Check condition
Sense key: 02h - Not ready
Sense code: 0Ah

I'm not a total SCSI expert so I'm not figuring this out. Is there a
termination issue? As far as I can tell both sides of the chain are
terminated. The drive is hooked up externally and I'm using an active
terminator. The host adapter should be terminating internally.

What generally causes the above errors? I'm getting it on multiple drives
across multiple adapters.
