What card are you using and what's the layout of the bus?  Note that
I had to use an inline active terminator on my narrow bus because
neither my CD-ROM (Plextor 12-plex) nor DAT drive (CP C1599) would
terminate it properly - I was getting timeouts also.

If you have one of your drives terminating the bus, that should work
since they probably use active termination.
