I thought my SCSI problems were only showing up with my cd-rw drive because
that's all I currently have online.

You're stating that the problems reported have been with cd-rw drives, but not
with hard drives, scanners, etc, using the same SCSI equipment on the same

I had assumed that my failure to be able to use my cd-rw drive would prevent
me from [writing] to any type of SCSI drive reliably. I even thought I had an
HP SCSI DDS drive that failed along similar reasons..

Can I do anything to help provide more information to diagnose and resolve

Replacement of my HP SCSI cdrw drive with a nice new ATAPI 40x writer is not a
problem, but the fear that there is an open issue in my system in something as
significant as SCSI is bothersome..
