Maybe your drive needs some time to setle after the SCSI bus reset. Try
to rescan the scsi bus / device with scsictl(8) and / or increase
SCSI_DELAY in your kernel config and build a new kernel.

The SCSI version of the TK50 is not very SCSI compatible. This drive
was never designed to work on a real SCSI bus. It was designed for the
VS2000 "tape port". This "tape port" is SCSI, you can connect and use
disks on it, you can even boot from it when you patch the boot ROMs, but
DEC never intended it for usage as a general purpose SCSI bus.
