The next thing to happen here is a READ_CAPACITY command. It may be that
the TEST_UNIT_READY and INQUIRY commands are issued normally and all further
commands attempt to use synchronous mode. There used to be a setup flag to 
control sync. negotiation for the wd33c93 driver, but I can't find it in the 
FAQ anymore. The driver appears to request nosync from the drive. I can't 
interpret the 'sending SDTR ...' without looking at the driver, sorry. There
should be Amiga experts for this :-)
