If you look closely, you will discover the drive is still initializing and 
thus seems to send someting like "ask me later for info", i.e. DEVICE BUSY 
If you insert a delay before the probing and after the SCSI-bus-reset you will 
get correct information.  This worked at least for my 3601, but I decided to 
like it better if booting goes faster...
