Thanks for the info. Indeed it seems like one of the media is bad, I can
now reproduce this error by running e2fsck on that disk, the error occurs
at the same block every time.
This still leaves one problem open: why does the sparq drive refuse to do
anything at all (except for ejecting the cartridge) once such an error has
With the disk I am currently using (the one that fails the e2fsck), the
first error message usually looks like:
pda: do_pd_read_drq: status = 0x14051 = ERR SEEK READY UNC TMO
The drive keeps making noises as if it was seeking, until I remove and
reload the pd module. Interestingly the pd modules seems to be able to
reset the drive, so I can use it again (previously, I had to power down
the drive before it would work again).
Any help would be appreciated
