You've got a lot mixed up in there. :) I just checked atapi-tape.c and
it does indeed send only MODE SENSE and SELECT 10. Since this has nothing
to do with SCSI nor ATAPI-CAM, please discuss this issue with sos at . He is
author and maintainer of ATA and I've added him to the CC.
As far as the atapicam man page, I've cc'd Thomas Quinot who can address
whether atapicam handles the spec correctly in this area.
