The drive is not formatted at all, it is factory new. I wanted to format
it in the jukebox via USB, but the PC does not see it.

I was able to access the old drive via USB, but with the new drive, the
jukebox does not enter "USB mode", where you can see the USB Symbol on
the display.

I would really like to know, what "*PANIC* disk:NULL" really means. I
tried looking into the source, but could only find a 2.5 tarball whereas
the jukebox runs 2.2

I will also try to put the new disk into a notebook to partition and
format it there, hope this will clear the error.
