PL-3507 no yes RBC Mapower MAP-KC21C1 ²

EFI firmware no no RBC Apple Mac mini x86 in target mode ³


¹) As mentioned, with firmware from MacPower.

²) Same firmware_revision as with Tino's disk, i.e. apparently firmware
from Prolific. Same findings as Tino's:
"sg_start --stop" is accepted but does not stop the motor.
"sg_start --pc=3" or "=2" stop the motor.
"sg_start --pc=1" or a read command restarts the motor.
"sg_start" does not restart the motor.

³) "sg_start --stop" is accepted but does not stop the motor.
"sg_start --pc=3" or "=1" fails with "invalid field in cdb".
This is of course against the spec, because RBC includes power
condition.

Moreover, when OS X shuts down, it apparently sends START STOP UNIT
without power condition to FireWire disks. Therefore we also should
rather _not_ use power condition per default.

I will send a patch which uses the power condition field only for
PL-3507 and DViCO CX-1.
