SubjectRe: question about scsi generic behavior

I think you need to set bpt=8 .

It is possible to set some drives to block sizes other than 512 bytes, and
hardcoding 512 is not a good idea, especially in code that might last a
while. In a few years we might have 4096-byte blocks to let the drives use
more powerful error correcting codes.
