Hm. My Toshiba USB floppy drive (which with NetBSD works just fine
otherwise, including writing), doesn't do much better:
angelic # scsictl sd0 identify
/dev/rsd0d: scsibus0 target 0 lun 0 <Y-E DATA, USB-FDU, 3.12>
angelic # scsictl sd0 format
/dev/rsd0d: Check Condition on CDB: 03 00 00 00 20 00
SENSE KEY: No Additional Sense
ASC/ASCQ: No Additional Sense Information
It probes as
umass0 at uhub0 port 1 configuration 1 interface 0
umass0: Y-E DATA FlashBuster-U, rev 1.10/3.12, addr 2
umass0: using UFI over CBI
atapibus0 at umass0 channel 0: 2 targets
sd0 at atapibus0 drive 0: <Y-E DATA, USB-FDU, 3.12> disk removable
sd0: 1440 KB, 80 cyl, 2 head, 18 sec, 512 bytes/sect x 2880 sectors
sd0: no disk label
On the other hand, a scsictl getcache gives a similar check condition,
too, so maybe ATAPI and SCSI just aren't quite close enough....
