This problem is either caused by bad media, bad firmware in your drive
or by an OS that modifies SCSI commands before sending them to the drive.

....Of course, yout should also check whether the FreeBSD version you are
 using includes the bug that hides SCSI error codes from the application.

Does anybody know what bug he's talking about?  I'm tracking 4.11-STABLE and 
5.4-STABLE, so it's probably already fixed.

i386 FreeBSD 4.11-STABLE
