Adaptec 2940 controler.  Zip 100, Orb drive, Toshiba DVD-RAM.  Zip and Orb
drives will not mount disk unless disk in drive to begin with.  You cannot
eject disk and mount new disk. Disks are fromated in VFAT. Messages about
superblock, etc.   Coping files to Orb drive result in chmod error even
when file is copied correctly.
DVD-Ram is seen as CDROM only.  The code to see DVD-RAM was to have been
put into 2.4.x kernel.  Cannot mount or format DVD-RAM disks to use as

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot system without disk in scsi orb or zip drive	
2.insert disk and attempt mount
3.boot system with disk in zip or orb drive.
4. eject disk and try to mount a new disk.

5. DVD-RAM -  Try to access DVD-RAM cartrage as sdxx and fdisk.

Actual Results:  Boot with out disk -- not able to mount. error about
Eject and put new disk in .. same error message

DVD-RAM -- no such device

Expected Results:  disks should have been mounted and accessable

Changing the Dos compatablity flag allows new disk to be mounted, but
system treats it as Large floppy with extreamly slow transfer rates.  This
does not occur with same disks using OS/2 or Winblos 98.

Could you please retry using the 2.4.2-0.1.19 kernel in rawhide and see if the
problem still exists?
