SubjectRe: Devices not supporting read-6....
Hi All,
Good luck getting Toshiba to update their firmware...

If you read the SCSI MultiMedia spec, you'll notice 6-byte Read/Write commands
are not mandatory (true for ATAPI & SCSI). So, I'd say the drivers need to be updated.

I seem to recall someone was updating drives to switch to 10-byte CDB's?
