SubjectRe: ATAPI Zip problems

You can not query an IDE-FLOPPY (ATAPI Zip or LS120) for capacity with out
media :-(

hdg: LS-120 VER5 00 UHD Floppy, ATAPI FLOPPY drive
hdg: 123264kB, 246528 blocks, 512 sector size, , DMA
hdg: 123264kB, 963/8/32 CHS, 533 kBps, 512 sector size, 720 rpm

No media
hdg: The drive reports both 126222336 and 0 bytes as its capacity

hdh: IOMEGA ZIP 100 ATAPI, ATAPI FLOPPY drive
hdh: 98304kB, 196608 blocks, 512 sector size
hdh: 98304kB, 32/64/96 CHS, 4096 kBps, 512 sector size, 2941 rpm

No media
hdh: The drive reports both 100663296 and 0 bytes as its capacity
