I had exactly the same kind of errors with my SyJet drive. I found it
defective and exchanged for another one - no errors now. Meanwhile I think
I found the reason of it - disk just can't keep the pace of negotiated
synchronous transfer. The cure might be to disable synchronous mode
in your adapter with this drive or to replace the drive ;(
Oh, yeah, and check your cables ...
