I know your problem. With my Pioneer DRM-624x everything was the same:
Timeouts while trying to mount all luns at a time. First
I tried to increase the timeout in the kernel sources - but unfortunately
that introduced other problems.
Then I hacked a small shell script that does mounting/unmounting of all
luns. After each mount, it waits 5 seconds before it attempts to mount
the next lun. Simple. No timeouts during mounting/unmounting.
But still if two or more processes access different discs, timeouts may
occure. Since it's foobar to access two different discs of a changer at
a time (the cd changer does 99.9% changing and 0.1% reading data),
I can live with it.
