I've had trouble with mine because it seems very picky about what disks
it's willing to accept.  I have a ~1G drive in mine (came with it)
which works fine, but when I try a (much larger) IDE laptop drive
behind a SCSI adapter - another of the same model that works fine in my
Voyager - the ROM code refuses to see the drive.  (I really need to
test this more to figure out what's really wrong here....)
