Description candrsn 1999-04-21 02:39:22 UTC
With a Memorex CRW-1622 a (Maxtor 90576D4, or a Maxtor
90648D3 or seemingly any conner over 2.2GB) on the same IDE
channel the CDROM has extra data at what seems to be a
cluster boundary.  Making the CDrom useless.
With a WDC AC22100H the CDROM Works Correctly.
this bug was repeated with kernels
2.0.34
2.0.35
2.0.36
2.2.0 - 2.2.3

comparisons of data teh cdrom stream using dd can be
prepared.

I am reporting to Kernel Lists also

We do not currently have one of these particular drives in our test
lab. We will need to obtain one to accurately test this problem.
