Have you done the usual stuff? Checked cable, tried different cable,
tried different controller, check power supply. I remember the ever
interesting allen buckley used to have problems like this and i think
those endef up being related to a low rated power supply. I had the same
problem with a CD burner and that was due to a shoddy cable.
