I've experienced the same problem under 1.3.78 with my Iomega Zip Drive
if I compile it as a module. If I compile it into the kernel, I don't
have any problem if I mount the disk right away. But if I wait a while,
I get the same SCS timeout error. I've never tried any other versions
that support ppa. I wonder if it has anything to do with a sleep mode in
the zip drive (or at least the second case of my problem).
