The current scsi framework on port-pmax has hard-coded device types per
ID. ID's 5 and 6 were hardcoded as tape drives in 1.3(.1). I think either
if you change the ID to something else (like 2, 3, or 4), or if you move
to 1.3.2, which had all devices coded as disks by default, you'll be fine.

Take care,
