I guess that the ATA bus doesn't like to be tri-stated in my Recorder.

Oh, I have messed around a lot with it, so yes, there is a chance that
something is broken.

Yes, it is standard since a while back. I hope that it is either a problem
with just my unit, but I can imagine that it may be a problem with this
particular version of the Recorder. Daniel Stenberg has the same version as
I, so I will have him perform the same tests on his box.
