Ewwww! ISA busmaster DMA SCSI. Avoid this, if it is a PCI machine or if
you have more then 16 MB of RAM. Try to do it with a PCI based machine
and an Adaptec 2940 or NCR / Symbios 53C810.

Maybe a drive error? I've seen several dead MO drives. Usually the
positioner was worn out...

IIRC you have to enable termination in the SCSI BIOS setup.
