Wow, thanks for the 'bad cable' idea. I replaced the (brand new) cable
and it's working, now. Previously, it was the right kind, it must have
just been flakey. The device still shows as UDMA33 though. Don't know
if that represents a different problem.

Odd that it would have read a mounted CD just fine through the bad cable...

but thanks!
