The last time I ran into these type of errors, it was a USB hard
drive that was powered off the USB bus. The USB port it was plugged
into could not supply enough power for the drive. So the electronics
of the USB to IDE interface was not initializing properly. Changing
the connection to a self powered hub fixed the problem. I seem to
remember another case where only the electronics was powered by the
USB bus. It would not work when attached to a bus powered hub.
