Initiator Detected Error is for parity errors.
I'd suggest that you try ABORT followed by BUS DEVICE RESET
followed by SCSI bus reset, after doing a transfer pad
that is 'reasonable'.
Note that the assertion of ATN isn't guaranteed to be responded to.
Most devices won't respond and shift to message phase until
it's convenient (e.g., after they've transferred that data
that you're trying to shut off).
