I might say that you could have tried a complete different make drive. who
says that the 75 MB IBM is ok ?

maybe the same design mistake was made or so. just a thought.

options to see if something weird isn't due to hardware could be to not
use dma, change pio modes, e.g. relax the drive settings.

not that I say IBM's drive is bad, it's just a thought.
