I've seen the same sort of behavior with a CD-ROM device which is also
powered off of the pcmcia slot.
it seems to be happy when I do a:
# (sleep 100 </dev/rcd0d) &
prior to accessing the drive.
I think we need some sort of wdc_pcmcia quirk indicating "leave drive
power on while card is present".
Ya, that did it.... strange as it looks...
I was able to mount an older Jackie Chan movie DVD as a ISO-9660 disc and
using the freely available AC3 audio decoder I was able to listen to the
English audio "track" from the movie.
A quirk for this sort of thing would certainly seem to be in order.
