perhaps the Windows driver selects a slower transfer rate than the linux
driver. With faster transfer rates, it is more likely to run into
trouble with improper cabling. But I have no idea, how to set parameters
for the atp870u driver :(
I have also no idea how to contact the author, Wu Ching Chen. But some
time after I wrote about the weird and unnecessary INQUIRY behaviour on
the linux-scsi mailing list, the fix went into the kernel sources...
