I reported this problem long ago, but I figured I'd try it again on
1.6beta3. No joy.
The problem is with a USB floppy drive:
umass0 at uhub1 port 2 configuration 1 interface 0
umass0: TEAC TEAC FD-05PUB, rev 1.00/0.00, addr 2
umass0: using UFI over CBI
atapibus1 at umass0 channel 0: 2 targets
sd0 at atapibus1 drive 0: <TEAC, FD-05PUB, 1026> type 0 direct removable
sd0: drive offline
(The machine itself is a i386.) I can read from it just fine, but when
I try to write I get:
sd0(umass0:0:0): Check Condition on CDB: 0x2a 00 00 00 00 13 00 00 01 00
SENSE KEY: Not Ready
ASC/ASCQ: ASC 0x04 ASCQ 0xff
I read from it by mounting it (-r -t msdos /dev/sd0e); it just worked.
I unmounted it -- didn't touch the disk itself, so there's no reason
for it to have gone not ready -- and did the same mount without -r, and
tried to copy a file. No joy.
