Yes. The Conner drive is not in there because it had no LUN or
another simple problem. The problem can only be fixed by
mode-select or a firmware update. There is no code
(mode-select, cache-page WCE=0, RCD=1) in there doing that.

BTW: A drive following the SCSI-specs may cause disk-corruption
under Linux (WCE=1). Data may still be in write-cache after
shutdown and power-off. (I miss "synchronize cache").
This is for shure a theoretical problem, but a practical bug.
Or did I miss something ?
