Tried both way, no go.

I tried a Toshiba XM3501, an XM5301 (I couldn't find a setting for
blocksize on either), a plextor PX-32TSi (with and without the "Block"
jumper on), a NEC Spin something 6x, and still always the same exact
error. I also put the CDROM on bus 0 and SCSI ID 4 just in case,
following on Francisco Javier Mesa-Martinez recommendation. No go.
Caleb also suggested:

It complained it couldn't find ls (with some CDROM light activity just
before the error).
It could be that only the XM3401 (not 3501 or later) will work:
As for Plextor, I know you are using one, but maybe only a specific
model or even firmware will work. What is your model/rev?
